To the Editor,
My name is Darcie and I am a Grade 10 student at Boston Bar Elementary Secondary School. I am writing you in regards to the field trip my photography class and the Grade 2/3/4's attended last Thursday. This trip was to the Seton Spawning Channel in Lillooet.
Everyone was enjoying themselves, whether big or little. Students had the chance to release each Coho Smolt raised by our own school. Afterwards, there were many hands- on workshops, skits, musical entertainment and much more. All in all, the day was filled with adventure and fun.
Students learned the life cycle of a salmon, dangers to the fish and how to prevent these dangers such as ghost nets. The students also had a chance to see a beaver dam and different critters that live in the water.
The finale was a few students got the chance to hold different kind of snakes that some had never even heard existed. By the end of the day every one was well educated and worn out, bringing back many memories to cherish forever.
