Education and Outreach
Education about Atlantic salmon and their habitats is an essential component of rebuilding wild populations of endangered Atlantic salmon in their native watersheds. Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery has an active Outreach and Education program which reaches out to students and adults through tours, presentations and in-classroom experiences, both at the hatchery and in the field. In many cases, these educational events come about through partnerships with the Friends of Craig Brook, other federal agencies, state and tribal agencies and private organizations. Because of these partnerships, outreach efforts in behalf of Atlantic salmon and watershed ecosystem quality extend throughout the entire state of Maine, as well as into the rest of New England and the Canadian Maritime provinces, all of which surround the Gulf of Maine.
