Each year Forest Service Fisheries Biologists and education specialists host a variety of aquatic education programs specially designed for children of all ages. The Pacific Northwest Region Fisheries Program takes great pride in its efforts to raise the level of awareness and understanding of the Northwest's incredible aquatic resources.
The Region also provides the delightful Salmon Storytelling Tent and Web of Life Costumes at a variety of events and educational programs.
The Web of Life allows children to parade around in a costume of their favorite forest creature, mimicking their sounds and movements, followed by a visit inside the inflatable storytelling tent where they hear Native American stories about salmon, in a completely unique teaching environment.
