K nowing that many teachers, students and their parents were stuck at home in the early months of the pandemic, PSF launched a series of Educational Resources to ensure that everyone had access to fun activities to educate youth on Pacific salmon, their life cycle, habitats, species interactions and more. These materials were created as part of PSF's Salish Sea Marine Survival Project (SSMSP), dedicated to determining the primary factors affecting the survival of juvenile salmon and Steelhead in the Salish Sea. Krystal Pyke, an educational consultant with the SSMSP, developed these resources to enhance children's knowledge of Pacific salmon. Coupled with artwork by Anisha Parekh, these resources are a great, interactive way to learn about salmon on our coast. Jason Hwang, PSF's VP of salmon, even created his own video about restoration efforts in Adams River for his wife's classroom. Stay tuned for more PSF Educational Resources coming soon!

Executive Coordinator Ian Bruce and his team have had to significantly adjust practices at their Millstream Fishway project amidst COVID-19. Building the fishway – a series of stepped pools – will provide EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! If you are inspired by these stories of perseverance for Pacific salmon, consider becoming a monthly donor at devastating Big Bar landslide.
