PCD has teamed up with the Puyallup Historical Hatchery Foundation to host 4th graders at the local salmon hatchery. The hatchery building has undergone extensive renovations over the past few years and is now ready to be shown off. Students get to learn how a fish hatchery operates, witness salmon spawning, and explore the habitat of Clarks Creek. 

This fall, ten Puyallup classes will attend these field trips, and this number will only grow in future years!
