YOU are invited to participate in the Salmon Homecoming School Days on the Waterfront – Thursday, September 13th through Friday, September 14th – taking place in Waterfront Park, just south of the Seattle Aquarium. In the past, interactive presentations and displays have attracted the most interest and attention and are strongly encouraged. Please note you are welcome to participate in the public event on Saturday, September 15th.
We are expecting approximately 500 fourth and fifth-grade students each day for the School Days program on Thursday and Friday. Please join us for this exciting event! There is no fee for participation in the School Days event. We will be coordinating with each education booth to participate in an interactive activity around one of the following themes:
- Salmon life cycle and ecosystems
- Habitat protection and restoration
- Stormwater and Pollution
- Culture and Communities
Exhibit spaces (10 ft. wide x 10 ft. deep) will be located in WaterfrontPark. A limited number of canopies are available – if you have your own, please bring it! Set up must be accomplished by 9:00 a.m. Thursday to accommodate the school day program. Tables must be staffed at all times during the hours of 10:30am–1:30pm. The Salmon Homecoming Celebration assumes no responsibility for your display.
Tables and chairs will be available to borrow from the event stock. Please indicate on your application if you will be requesting use of this equipment. Please be sure to provide your own hand truck, carts, etc. for loading and unloading.
Please note that direct fundraising is not allowed, however, we welcome any flyers and brochures about your organization and any events you may be having.
A School Days Exhibitor Application will soon be available on The Seattle Aquarium’s website. A link will be posted when available.
