Students For Salmon (SFS)


The Students for Salmon program is a hands-on environmental science program, aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), for 4th grade students in Whatcom County. It is offered at no-cost to participating schools. The program teaches the basics of salmon and stream ecology while reinforcing values of stream stewardship through hands-on field activities.  

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!
