Last weekend, I got to go on my first village trip–and relive the glory days of elementary school.
I visited Unalakleet (YOU-nuh-luh-cleat), a community of 800 nestled on the Bering Sea. Laureli, the News Director, came with me, to show me the ropes and show me around her hometown. I travelled there to do a profile on the Unalakleet Elementary School fifth grade class’ salmon incubation project. And on Friday morning, I tagged along on their outing to the North River, where they saw the habitat of spawning salmon and watched biologists take eggs from a female salmon. I had a blast seeing the egg-take and talking to the kids, teachers and biologists.
All in all the village trip was awesome. Check out the photos for more!
