4-H Fish Stewards Resources
4-H Fish Stewards is a program offered twice-yearly in partnership with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Salmon Trout Enhancement Program (STEP). By raising and hatching native fish in a classroom, students develop an understanding of the natural connections between strong stewardship and healthy habitat. In addition, they learn how to apply science and math skills in a hands-on setting as they monitor egg development, test water quality, and release salmon or trout fry.
OSU Extension Service provides fish tanks, chillers, and water quality testing supplies to participating teachers for just $25.00
