Project Title & Description
Salmon Valley Stewardship: Sense of Salmon
The Sense and Sensibility project will focus on children 6-12 years of age in Lemhi County, Idaho and Ft. Hall Shoshone-Bannock Reservation, Idaho. It will include "River of Raptors" and "Sagebrush Adventures" classes that will each run for six half days on Friday's during the school year; "Trees, Please" and "Mountains of Wool" are day-camps that will each run for five half days during the summer; and a two day Salmon River raft trip in August for children entering the sixth grade. Each piece of the Sense of Salmon project will weave together science, culture, and art using an interdisciplinary approach. Approximately 10-25 children are expected for each Friday program, 25-40 for the summer day camps, and 45-55 for the two-day float trip on the Salmon River.
