From November 2021 to March 2022 over 800 students across Tacoma Public Schools as well as Cheif Leschi Elementary School participated in our Salmon in the Classroom program. Select schools were given a salmon tank and 150 coho salmon eggs from the Puyallup Tribal Hatchery. Students raised salmon from tiny eggs to eventually release them at Swan Creek. As part of a culminating project, students were asked to decorate a paper coho salmon.
The public can view these decorated salmon as they will be hanging around the Seaport until this fall.
