Forests and Fins (Grades 5-8)

Focuses on stream/forest ecology and the life cycle of salmon. Students complete a mock stream survey in the classroom in preparation to do a real stream survey on the field study trip. Students work in small groups to analyze the riparian zone, look for macro-invertebrates, test water quality and evaluate the stream channel.
