Salmon in the Classroom to End
An important component of environmental education at Carkeek Park, and other locations, is being terminated due to budget cuts at the State Department of Fish and Wildlife. As reported in the Seattle Times, the budget changes voted in the recent special session of the state legislature removed funding for the program.
You may have seen the bus loads of school children at Carkeek Park each spring, learning how the salmon fry from their shcool fit into the larger environment and cycle of life. Unless some other source of funding is identified this program will end soon.
