Guagalpe River Field Trip

We had a great time on our Fish Fanatics field trip!

Our class went through 4 stations:
Biomonitoring - Checking on the health of the river by collecting aquatic insects at the river bank.

Obstacle Course - the kids run through the obstacles facing salmon and trout as they try to get from the river to the ocean and back.

First Impressions - making fish prints on paper to learn the anatomy of the fish.

Redd Bed - An experiment with sorting pebbles and making clay eggs to learn what environment is best for a salmonid to lay her eggs.
