Students For Salmon (SFS)

Overview

The Students for Salmon Program transforms fourth-graders into field scientists to investigate the health of salmon habitat in their watershed. This three-part series is offered at no cost to participating schools, including a student-led restoration project and a Next Generation Science Standards supported curriculum for teachers.


Outlined below is the sequence of our Students for Salmon Program components:

* Supplemental Curriculum: All partner teachers are provided a comprehensive curriculum to supplement the NSEA led components.

Partnering with NSEA for many years has been very rewarding. Some years our fourth graders have been able to help plant seedlings along Fishtrap Creek. It is wonderful to now see some of those seedlings and shrubs at 15-20 feet tall. My students are making a difference!
