The Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN) is pleased to offer a unique professional development training experience in partnership with NOAA's Bay-Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) program. Focused on the connections that salmon provide between oceans and inland watersheds, the Salmon Institute combines expert instructors with standards-based curriculum to provide teachers and environmental educators the skills and tools to connect their students to their watersheds year-round.
Classroom and field training is located in beautiful West Marin and will consist of classroom and field-based activities using experts in fisheries biology, restoration, and ecology. In-depth standards based materials will be distributed daily with a focus on ocean ecology, the natural history of coho salmon, and how water and land-use practices affect the health of inland watershed and coastal marine ecosystems and their ability to support healthy salmon. Discussions will take place daily on acquiring resources and tools to empower and activate students to become stewards of tomorrow.
