About the Program
We assist teachers at Upton Middle School and Eau Claire High School with their state of michigan dnr Salmon in the Classroom projects. Each year, students raise salmon from eggs to smolt in classroom tanks, then releaset them in the spring at Flaherty Park in Watervliet, Michigan. In 2018 alone, PhycoTech staff and volunteers assisted students in releasing over 300 salmon. After the release, students participate in various educational activites pertaining to water quality and conservation.
