Carkeek Watershed Community Action Project

SIS Salmon Releases at Carkeek Park, Spring Programs

Every year, many local public and private elementary school classrooms receive salmon eggs from the Suquamish Tribe as part of the Salmon in the Schools program. After months of feeding, caring for, and learning about salmon, the students and teachers deliver their salmon to the Les Malmgren Imprint Pond in Carkeek Park. In addition to delivering their fish for imprinting, these field trips include hands-on activities based on their school curriculum. The SIS program is an effort to educate kids about biology, ecology and to give them a sense of the importance of maintaining a healthy environment.
