California Salmonids

Students will learn the basic characteristics of common California Salmonids and how their adaptations allow them to survive and reproduce. Students will also learn to identify native salmonid species, and what can be done to restore the salmon habitat. The program is offered as an assembly or three classroom visits, and works well in conjunction with the Trout in the Classroom program offered through Trout Unlimited and the Department of Fish and Game. Also, there is no preparatory work required by the teacher. TSI’s teachers do everything for you!

The program culminates with the release of fingerling salmon into Richardson Bay. The release takes place each year in May at Blackie’s Pasture in Tiburon, CA.
