Before school let out for the summer, Unalaska students had one final task: releasing hundreds of salmon fry into Iliuliuk Creek. A small army of elementary students crested the riverbank, clutching styrofoam cups.
“No running! We don’t want the fish to fall out of the cups,” one teacher warned, as kids made their way down to the water.
The students leaned in close, tipped their cups, and poured tiny streams of coho into the creek.
