WDFW invites you to join us at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's (PNNL) Salmon Summit. Every year, fourth and fifth graders from across Eastern Washington raise fish as part of the Salmon in the Classroom curriculum through the Benton Conservation District, The Salmon in the Classroom allows students to hatch salmon eggs at school, study salmon life cycle and habitat, and test water quality. The program culminates with the release of the salmon into the Columbia River.

PNNL and WDFW staff will tag and release juvenile salmon, raised at PNNL's Aquatic Research Laboratory, into the Columbia River. Students have the opportunity to ask questions and participate.
