More than 10,000 school-aged kids visited the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery in the fall of 2023 to witness the miraculous migration of salmon. Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH) provided more than 200 educational tours. Affordable, educational field trips are an essential learning component to engage students in experiential science curriculum. Yet the single biggest obstacle for schools to take advantage of this hands-on experience is the cost of field trip transportation, in some cases the school buses cost 6-7 times the actual tour cost. We are reaching out today to ask you to support FISH educational programming during this season of giving.

Across the country, schools are struggling to rebound from pandemic shutdowns. The Issaquah Salmon Hatchery also was closed for two years. FISH educational tours enrich learning opportunities for students and provide important lessons about climate change. With every $1,000 pledge to the FISH School Scholarship Fund, we can bring a school to the hatchery for free so students can experience the wonder of the salmon migration and get face to face with these amazing fish. Right now, we need your support for the Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery youth programming. Can we count on your donation to help us navigate the changing landscape and provide educational tours for underserved schools? We need your help to achieve our mission of protecting our salmon and ensuring their survival for future generations. 

Your support makes a meaningful difference in the lives of children and educators, and you are choosing to make science educational enrichment a part of your life and valuing the experiences our programs give to underserved schools.
