Riverdale Salmon Project

Riverdale Salmon Project - In 1995 I was teaching 5th grade science. I thought that studying the salmon issues in the Pacific Northwest would be a good way for my students to learn about our ecosystem and consider sustainable uses. I had students study the problem of declining salmon runs from the viewpoints of interested parties. Students looked at the competing interests of farmers, commercial fisheries, sports fisheries, power plant managers, wild salmon advocates, hatchery managers and Native Americans.

Salmon Listserv - How to subscribe or unsubscribe...

The Salmon Liserv is an e-mail discussion group devoted to salmon issues. The list is designed for use by classrooms studying salmon issues. Salmon experts have joined the list to answer student questions and give them a chance to discuss things first-hand with people who know what they are talking about. The list is a great resource for any classroom. We are very thankful for the time and effort volunteered by our guest experts on the list.
