For this project, we are hoping to have the following
teachers at these sites:
All schools will be responsible for a small stipend of $50 for each of the HSU graduate students. Bridgeville and Cuddeback should bring checks for $25 to Corey Jones, Botanist and Scotia and Hydesville should bring checks for $25 to Nick Simpson, Macro invertebrate scientist.
All teachers/parents should bring digital cameras to document the day, to take pictures of groups of students working with scientists, and to encourage watershed Science Fair projects. Students will need log books, note pads, and pencils especially black, green, and brown.
Barbara Domanchuk may be available for filming to make a short documentary. The cost could be shared by all schools if desired. Contact me for more information.
All schools should check in for the weather on that day.
If there are questions, contact Sal on Thursday, Nov.17th at school
764-2212 or 725-9218 in the evening.
At present there is no replacement date so let's hope we are fortunate. Drizzly weather is fine but storms are not safe.

Assemblies will be designed for older students grades
4-8th. Its purpose is to inform students about the return of the salmon,
the life cycles of the salmon, and allow students to share information
about our special salmon migration in the Van Duzen.
Mr.Mike Guierrero will present some of his famous salmon art and talk about his techniques using actual salmon carcasses. He will also talk about watersheds.
Mike will also introduce the Salmon Watch Project from Friends of the Van Duzen. These presentations will encourage students to become more aware of their watersheds and of endangered species. We are recommending that the Salmon Tales project be integrated with the literature and science programs at the local schools.
Thanks for your interest in your watershed. Adopt a Watershed. Yours!
