Education

Salmon, like people, thrive in a healthy watershed. The more we know about salmon and their needs, the better equipped we are to make informed decisions about how we choose to live in our community. Schools and organizations can benefit from watershed education and service projects provided by NOSC that help promote stewardship of our resources.

Classroom visits and service learning projects tailored to your curriculum and educational interests are available upon request. Our educational booth staffed with knowledgeable experts and volunteers is available for festivals and community events. We are happy to present to your club, class, or community group about any of the following topics: salmon biology and lifecycle, watersheds, stormwater pollution prevention, riparian processes, restoration and volunteering for salmon on the Olympic Peninsula.

If you are interested in volunteering with our education programs, please contact us at outreach@nosc.org or call (360) 379-8051.

Thanks to all the teachers who have worked with us to plant along Chimacum, Morse and Snow Creeks.  Not only did you plant future forests, but you are creating future stewards!

We hope to work with your class soon!
