  • Salmon are Back!!

    Posted by Heather Ricarte at 1/9/2017 3:25:00 PM

     

    Wild Salmon Life Cycle

    For nearly 10 years, Cedarhurst has helped local salmon populations thrive. Mr. Knox, one of our 4th grade teachers, brought 250 Coho salmon eggs from Soos Creek Salmon Hatchery (Auburn) to our school aquarium over Winter Break. The salmon have started to hatch and will soon be swimming around! The surviving salmon will be re-released into Soos Creek sometime in late winter or early spring in time for spawning season. Be sure to stop by the tank!
