Pacific Salmon Run

No longer available
You are a Pacific Salmon. Can you survive the journey from birth stream, to ocean, to maturity and back to spawning grounds? Track your voyage as a pacific salmon as you make your way back to your original spawning grounds. Stamp your progress on a Species Card and beware of dead end hazards along the way!

Become involved in the curriculum as you swim with the salmon. At each decision point within the maze, correctly answer questions to advance to the next stage of life. Answer incorrectly and experience firsthand the challenges salmon face to survival in the wild. Successfully answer all the questions and return to your original spawning ground.

Track your development from a salmon egg (roe) to a spawning adult as you journey through three key habitats: Birth Habitat, Migration Corridor, and Estuary/Ocean. Passport tests each visitors understanding of the information and also provides a convenient location to promote return visits and/or sponsors.

Developed in collaboration with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. Experience the salmon lifecycle. Come face-to-face with the many obstacles salmon face when going to and from their upstream spawning grounds.

Pacific Salmon Run will be custom designed to fit your gallery or outdoor space. Columns, trees, corners, and other irregularities can be easily worked around to create an inviting presentation.

Kids are sure to go through Pacific Salmon Run again and again. Provide parents with the opportunity for a snack or to shop by placing the maze near concessions and gift shops.

Themed mazes are powerful kinesthetic learning tools. The synergy between the physical acts of exploring a maze while mentally interacting with the curriculum engages and educates visitors of all ages and creates a memorable experience.
