The Community Foundation of NCW has awarded us a $9,025 grant in support of our education program, and now YOU can help us meet our $12,500 goal with donations through the GiveNCW campaign. 

   NCW Salmon Awareness                    Project 

The Cascade Columbia Fisheries Enhancement Group (CCFEG) aims to inspire residents of North Central Washington to protect and restore our local waterways and the fish that inhabit them. With your support, the Salmon Education and Outreach program will serve 2,000+ individuals in all demographics in our service area through free public events and field and classroom-based lessons about watersheds and salmon. The Schools for Salmon course in Chelan County will serve 3rd graders at seven different elementary schools, 3rd-5th grade students in the Wenatchee School District after school program, high schoolers at Wenatchee High School, and college students at Wenatchee Valley Community College. They will participate in fish dissections and hands-on, mind-on lessons that teaches students about fish anatomy. Your donation will help students understand the importance salmon ecology, provide a learning experience that will get them excited about science, and build the foundation for lifelong stewardship of our natural environment.
