5th Graders Learn About Salmon

Posted on: December 5, 2018

Oak Grove’s fifth grade learned about the salmon life cycle up close as we watched roe hatch into alevin, and alevin grow into fry!

Once our young salmon were big enough, we walked down to the Willamette River at Takena Landing (whee – a walking field trip!) to release our salmon fry into the river!
