Classroom Presentations

Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH) strives to cultivate a sense of wonder about salmon and provide expertise to students and teachers who are learning about salmon and watersheds. Have a FISH staff member make a presentation to your classroom to prepare for a visit to the hatchery, or as an entertaining and informative stand alone unit. 


Pre-K to Grade 6

This presentation is an excellent addition for classes that are planning field trips to the hatchery. As a group, we will explore the Pacific salmon life cycle, their habitat needs, and the importance of salmon in the Pacific Northwest. Students will learn about predators, challenges, the value of watersheds, and the role of hatcheries in salmon recovery.


Grades 6-12

Explore the threats that salmon face and brainstorm strategies to mitigate those barriers. We will provide an overview of the current status of salmon in the Puget Sound then turn over the responsibility to the students to research and develop Best Management Practices. This lesson is heavily geared towards accountability and solutions on individual, collective, and structural levels. Student laptop access is ideal for this lesson.

  • Our classroom presentations are designed to last 45-55 minutes. When booking, you will be prompted to select an AM or PM time slot. Each of these slots can hold up to 2 classes of 60 students each. The time of the presentation can be decided within each AM or PM slot.
