Egging on ed­u­ca­tion

Lo­cal stu­dents can watch salmon hatch

Lodi News-Sentinel - - FRONT PAGE - NEWS-SEN­TINEL STAFF

Eight schools in Lock­e­ford and Lodi got a de­liv­ery of salmon eggs from Kathy Grant, City of Lodi Pub­lic Works Wa­ter­shed Pro­gram Co­or­di­na­tor, who had picked up the eggs at the Mokelumne River Hatch­ery.

The 30-some­thing day-old eggs will spend the next month or so in a small aquar­ium kept at a com­fort­able tem­per­a­ture of 54 de­grees fahren­heit. Stu­dents and teach­ers will be able to ob­serve them hatch­ing be­fore be­ing re­leased back into the river in Fe­bru­ary.
