We are so pleased to have two schools participating in this program this year.
Pine River School in Midland
Bangor Lincoln Elementary School in Bay City
Our teachers attended a workshop at the Platte River State Fish Hatchery where they were given a tour of the hatchery and attended a class given by the DNR. This class gives them educational material in which to experience the studying of the salmon life cycle in the classroom.
The program also gives a school year long opportunity to help students and their families understand that Michigan’s public natural resources and lands are managed by the DNR, to keep them healthy now and in the future, for the true owners, YOU!
As of today Jan. 7th, the eggs have hatched and the students call themselves “parents” to the fish.
