Third Grade Salmon Project

The Salmon Project was begun in 1994 by then third grade teacher, Kevin Hughes. When Mr. Hughes became elementary principal, Mrs. Catanese took over as "Salmon Project Director". This has been a valuable third grade science program at the Onekama School.

In the fall we visit the weir to get our eggs. For many months we watch the eggs develop into young salmon. In the spring we release our salmon.
