Raising salmon in the classroom is one of our most popular programs with both students and teachers. Any Eugene 4J teacher can choose to participate in this exciting project. We supply all of the equipment, provide an after school workshop to help you set up your tank, provide ready to go lessons and how-to materials, and provide extensive online information. If you would like to participate, contact Tana Shepard at 790-5920 or e-mail him at:

Teachers of 4th grade or blended 4/5 grades who raise salmon, also have the opportunity to take a field trip to either Fish Creek or Whitaker Creek to see spawning in the wild! There are some requirements in order to qualify for these popular trips. If you are interested, watch your e-mail. Tim will be sending out information about the trips in early fall.
