Administer Fish Friends and River Rangers Youth Education Program
The Fish Friends program is a naturally integrated program for the classroom, as it encompasses mathematics, science, social studies, and writing and works with students of all abilities. It allows children and adults to see, first-hand, the early stages of an Atlantic salmon’s life cycle and to better understand the need to protect our natural environment. Overall, this year’s program will involve 15 classes (310 students), and roughly 50+ adults(teachers, Education Program Assistants, chaperones, etc.). Funds are needed to purchase new equipment for classrooms, maintain and repair old equipment, cover project expenses, and pay for the staff that runs the program.
