Beach and Salmon field labs
Our two-part Beach field lab program gives your students an introduction to Northwest intertidal animals either in your classroom or at the Aquarium and then, on a separate trip, you'll see many of these great invertebrates in their local habitat. Select beaches are available based on your school's location.
In the two-part Salmon field lab program, a presentation at the Aquarium or your classroom is followed by a field program that explores selected sites on the Cedar River near Renton when salmon are spawning. Students will see salmon, investigate salmon habitat and learn how we share the river with the fish.
