Meet the salmon of Olson Stream and learn how important these amazing fish are to our ecosystem and culture. The ON SITE fieldtrips include seven interactive stations: salmon life cycles, water testing, watershed health, composting, predators, Native plants and Native storytelling and fishing practices. Stations will be led by trained naturalists, museum staff and cultural educators from the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe.


Each class will receive a pre and post fieldtrip IN CLASS visit with a naturalist from the Environmental Science Center during which students will engage in hands-on, NGSS-correlated activities that explore the habitat needs of salmon – as well as the challenges to survival that salmon face during each stage of the salmon life cycle.



  • ONSITE fieldtrips are December 4 -7 with start times of either 9:30am or Noon. During the ONSITE fieldtrip we can see up to 5 classes per date and time slot.
  • The ONSITE fieldtrip is 2 hours and IN CLASS visits are 1 – 1.5 hours. You will be contacted after you book your ON SITE fieldtrip date to schedule you pre and post IN CLASS visits.
  • Bus subsides are available on a first come, first served basis. $100 per schools with 76% or more of students receiving free or reduced lunch and $50 per school with 50 – 75% receiving free or reduced lunch.
  • This program was designed in partnership with the Environmental Science Center’s Salmon Heroes Program, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and the King Conservation District to align with Next Gen Science Standards and the Since Time Immemorial Curriculum.
