About the Program
Explore the relationship between people and the environment through the investigation of the West Coast fishing industry. Students compare past and present fishing methods and discuss the economic and cultural importance of fishing to coastal communities. An interactive fishing activity inspires students to consider how human activity contributes to the sustainability of our oceans while they discover different fish species.
What to Wear
The Cannery is a historical site built on top of water, and does not have indoor heating. Please dress warmly! It can be very cool inside even when the temperature is pleasant outdoors.
The interpreters appreciate student name tags to help with asking questions, but this is not a requirement.
