On Nov. 5, the California Regional Environmental Education Community will be hosting a Salmonids in the Classroom workshop for EEI teachers. According to the registration email:
From eggs, to alevin, to fry that may be released back into the river, your students will be able to observe the beginning of this fascinating life cycle.
Raising salmon in the classroom is an opportunity to teach students to understand, respect and protect freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems, and to recognize how all humans are linked to these complex environments.
Joe Ferreira and Jane Van Camp from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife will provide the training neccessary to receive eggs and participate in the program.
We will also be exploring the EEI curriculum and integrating it with our salmonids program.
The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Wentworth Education Center, San Joaquin County Office of Education, 2707 Transworld Drive, Stockton. Cost for the workshop is $15.
