Mission Statement
The mission of the Kokanee Karnival Youth Education Program is to provide a dynamic, hands on learning experience to educate and excite elementary school children about clean water, healthy watersheds, and fish conservation while promoting safe and responsible angling, good citizenship, and community stewardship.

Every year, a group of 4th and 5th graders from Central Oregon get a firsthand look at the spawning and habitat of kokanee at the annual Kokanee Karnival.

Central Oregon Daily was there as the students from Ponderosa Elementary put on the waders to learn about the many forms of life living in and around a river.
