Witness the epic last act of the drama that is the pink salmon life cycle. During the fall, pink salmon that emerged from their eggs in the Indian River just a mere two years earlier will return. After beating the odds, these salmon will attempt to pass on their genes to the next generation. If you and your students would like to witness this event, and participate in a set of interactive activities that teach students about the life cycle of the pink salmon, contact the park's education specialist for more information (907) 747-0134.
