RFEGs promote stewardship through educational programs that engage the community in understanding salmon and the natural world.
RFEG K-12 science-based education opportunities give thousands of students each year the opportunity to get out of the classroom and apply Core Standards to real world examples. A variety of internships, service learning positions, workshops, and volunteer opportunities help community members of all ages learn about the ecosystem and salmon.
HIGHLIGHT AREA: CATS Program
RFEGs were chosen by the Puget Sound Partnership to implement the Citizen Action Training School. This program increases civic participation, leadership, public engagement, and education to improve local ecological health, awareness, water quality, and aquatic habitat. RFEGs are uniquely situated in their communities to implement meaningful education and outreach programs through diverse partnerships that ignite a passion for salmon and provide the training and skills necessary for future conservation efforts.
