* = Required field
*I would be interested in attending an after school 90 minute workshop explaining more about rearing salmon in the classroom: (Workshop to be scheduled between September 22 and October 22).
* = Required field
At the workshop, we will be giving salmon-raising instruction booklets, curriculum guides and advice to those in need. In addition we will supply aquarium kits and insulation for FREE to any 4J school courtesy of EWEB energy and water related grants. (If you received a free kit last year, we expect you to use that kit.) The last hour of the workshop will involve putting together the equipment and cutting out insulation to make covers for your 10 gallon aquarium. We are coordinating delivery of eggs this year and will be working with Jeff Ziller of the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, so even if you have told us before, or told Jeff, we need confirmation. Please note that delivery of the eggs is expected the last half of October, so your tank will need to be operational 2 weeks before that.
Old (Experienced) pros are welcome and encouraged to attend -- the sage advice and enthusiasm you can provide is invaluable.
Please pass this URL on to anyone else who might be interested.
I will be sharing a tank with another teacher(s):
