Big wigs and small frys learn about salmon at Trinity Western University's Salmon in the Valley

Salmon in the Valley is an opportunity for students to spend the day studying TWU's Ecosystem Study Area or ESA. The ESA contains diverse species of plant and animal life which the students have the opportunity to get up close and personal with. They also learn about preservation, proper management of the environment and are introduced to endangered species that live in the ecosystem.

On Friday, grade 6 and 7 students from County Line Elementary School participated in water quality testing, aquatic invertebrate sampling, plant and animal identification and salmon habitat exploration through fun games including a visit from a “mad scientist.”

Joining the students were Federal Liberal Candidate Jake Gray, Aldergrove Rotary President Karen Long, Township Councillor Bob Long and Councillor Howie Vickberg as well as local media.
