Fisheries and Oceans Canada

For more than 30 years, Fisheries and Oceans' Salmonid Enhancement Program has supported British Columbia and Yukon Educators who teach their students to understand, respect and protect freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems, and to recognize how all humans are linked to these complex environments.

DFO's Stream to Sea Education Program is a menu of classroom/field activities and teacher training opportunities. Go to Stream to Sea in the Programs section to learn more.

Stream to Sea Education Coordinators have also compiled a list of educational web sites for teachers seeking additional material on any of the topics they have explored with their students through our lesson plans. 

Your local DFO Community Advisor or Education Coordinator may provide support for integrating Stream to Sea into student learning. See contact information at the bottom of this page if you live or teach in the Capital Regional District, including the Southern Gulf Islands.

Stream to Sea

Learn more about your local streams and rivers as you study the Pacific Salmon.  A variety of activities and resources introduces students to life in freshwater ecosystems and offers practical ways for them to help conserve these valuable habitats.  As they learn more about the waterways in their community, a new sense of place will empower young citizens to become active stewards of these important places.
