From local teacher Tonya Wessman:

“The salmon tank is a great learning tool for our entire school and the families it represents because it is in the lobby where everyone observes the entire process. The students and their parents eagerly watch for the eggs to arrive, and many of them observe the eggs every day to look for changes. There is great excitement with every little change that takes place. I don’t think many people have seen this process before, so we are definitely educating the public about the salmon life cycle. I do believe it makes the students more aware of the importance of caring for the environment and the salmon habitats because they know more about the needs of the fish and they have personally taken an interest in them. Because the kids actually get to release the salmon, they are very interested in what might happen to them. This is real-life, hands-on learning, which is always the best!”
