Conservation Field Day: Floods, Fish, and Formations

Designed for small school groups, pods and homeschool students, this field trip will take us to the Columbia Gorge to learn the fascinating story behind how the Gorge was formed. Hike up Beacon Rock, an extinct volcano to hear about tales of lava and gigantic ice age floods. Then travel to the Oregon side of the river to have lunch and learn about the natural history of salmon and what adaptations make these fish so unique. Visit Bonneville Fish Hatchery where we will discuss some of the challenges salmon face along with what we can do to help protect them, making sure to save time to say hi to the massive Herman the Sturgeon.
