On Wednesday the class worked on taking a mysterious object apart. Qualities of the object were recorded before the actual dismantling took place. What looked like fur and bones was found inside the object. As the object was being taken apart with toothpicks and tweezers, the bones were sorted into groups, then put into baggies for further examination.
Our salmon are “buttoning up.” That doesn’t mean they are being quiet, it means they are starting to lose the yolk sac that has sustained them up to this point. We will release them into the Willamette River this Tuesday afternoon.
