News THE EYES HAVE IT | On Jan. 5, children at 14 schools received 2,700 coho eggs to rear for release in Fauntleroy Creek as part of the Salmon in the Schools program. The eyed eggs came from the state's Soos Creek hatchery in Auburn. Students will have age-appropriate assignments to care for their fish as they hatch into alevin, then transition into fry. Teachers and tank volunteers will also help them learn about salmon biology, habitat, water chemistry, and the importance of salmon to Pacific Northwest culture and commerce. Releases of fry into Fauntleroy Creek will take place in May.
