hatching project funded
For the last two years, Prairie Elementary School has had the opportunity to have the Hatchery in the Classroom Project through the Dworshak National Fish Hatchery.
This year Prairie Elementary will purchase their own equipment and continue the Hatchery in the Classroom Project as part of the fourth grade Idaho History curriculum. This project was funded by grants from Cottonwood Booster Club, Idaho County Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Governorís Innovative Grant. This cross-curricular, hands-on project has helped provide practical life-experience in science and math. It also demonstrates the importance of the steelhead throughout the history of our state.
