Four Seasons Club brings salmon story to Orleans students


FOUR SEASONS GARDEN CLUB BRINGS SALMON STORY TO STUDENTS -- Something "fishy" happened at the Orleans Elementary School a few weeks ago. Maria Young, education and outreach director at Northwoods Stewardship Center, taught over 100 students from St. Paul's and Orleans Elementary schools all about the Atlantic salmon during a presentation sponsored by the Four Seasons Garden Club. Children from both schools gathered in Orleans on March 12 and learned all about the salmon's "epic journey to the Kingdom." Young had a colorful PowerPoint presentation that held the interest of the children and adults alike, and she also brought a couple very large preserved fish with her for the students to see up close. The students learned how to identify other local, familiar fish species including brook trout as well as historical aspects of fishing in the northeast and how fish populations are maintained. Facilitating and providing programs from Northwoods Stewardship Center to local schools is part of the garden club's purpose of stimulating and furthering environmental education.
