Salmon Release by Pear Tree Education

On Saturday 20th April, Pear Tree students finally released 52 Coho salmon fry into Beaver Creek at Stanley Park.

It was the final field trip after the 3 month Salmon-in-the-Classroom course at Pear Tree Education.

Check out these photos of the release! There are plenty more on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PearTreeEducation

Some modern technological methods used, as we compare the temperature of the water with the air, as well as with the salmon tank back at Pear Tree Education.

More traditional methods come into play, as a Pear Tree student records the water temperature at 10 degrees.

One of many happy Pear Tree students!
