Brookside students spent Earth Day carefully releasing our young coho salmon into Brookside Creek on a soggy cold spring day. Students learned about the salmon cycle and ways to protect the coho habitat.
Festivities included a native storyteller along with a traditional native blessing for the safe return of the salmon.
