On May 16, South Broadview Elementary students participated in a Chinook salmon fry release at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre. The students had raised the fry in their classrooms for most of the school year and got to release them in the Shuswap River on a field trip. Five more schools will also be releasing their fry until June 20.
