This fall and winter, more than 20 classes of 4th graders from schools across the district will visit the hatchery to learn about salmon. They will observe salmon spawning in Clarks Creek, explore the State’s hatchery operation, and learn about human impacts on salmon. PCD is excited to partner with the School District and the Hatchery to offer this environmental education program and teach local students about the importance of salmon and how their actions can make a difference in their watershed.
