There is no fee required for attendance. Teachers will receive materials for the classroom and will be connected to a sponsor for their area. The sponsors provide all of the necessary equipment and deliver the eggs to the classrooms. Participation in the training is required before teachers can receive salmon eggs for the classroom. Teachers must register before coming to the training.  You may register by calling 916 358-1644 and leaving a message for Jane Van Camp or Joe Ferreira; or by email:

When registering please leave your name, phone number, and the name and location (city) of your school. On the day of the workshop please come 15 minutes early, bring a bag lunch and water, and follow the signs for parking.

All NEW and RETURNING teachers must send in an application. Applications for new teachers will be available at the workshop. Returning teachers may get applications from their sponsors.
