Salmon Summit is the culminating activity for “Salmon in the Classroom” schools. After raising fish through the winter and spring, Salmon Summit provides students with an outdoor learning experience that enables them to release the fish into an approved water body. During Salmon Summit, students attend field stations to learn about wise use of water, fish tagging, hydroelectric dams, fish transport, agriculture, salmon recovery efforts, local wildlife, natural resource conservation and other topics. Over fifty entities, including federal, tribal, state, county, municipal, corporate and non-profit organizations contribute financial support, staffing, or goods and services to Salmon Summit. Over 300 volunteers participated in Salmon Summit 2009.

This year, Salmon Summit will include schools from Benton, Yakima, Franklin, and Walla Walla counties.  To accommodate all these students, Salmon Summit activities will be offered on Tuesday, May 4 and Wednesday, May 5.  We are expecting over 4,000 students.

We hope that you can join us for both days of Salmon Summit by providing a 20-minute student activity for one classroom at a time.   To RSVP or for more information, please contact Rachel Little at rachel-little@conservewa.org or (509)832-1329.
