Salmon eggs become a part of students science curriculum
RICHLAND, Wash. - Most people rarely see the first stages of the salmon life cycle up close and personal.
However, on Thursday, students at several elementary schools in the Richland School District got to see live salmon eggs become part of their classroom hatchery.
The Benton Conservation District helps sponsor the program to go along with their science curriculum.
Conservationists said it's a way to let students and teachers watch the transformation happen.
When the fish have hatched and developed schools take a field trip to release their fish in a local watershed.
