On Oct. 10, the second-graders toured the Trail Lake Hatchery and Weir where the salmon return home. The class learned that the survival rate for salmon is very low with only 80 adult salmon surviving out of 25,000 eggs. Students then netted salmon from the fish trap and squeezed their bellies to determine if the salmon were ready for the dog mushers or for capturing the eggs. The class thanks Ginny Litchfield for the lesson about salmon.
