STEP is run every year through the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to teach students about salmon and trout life cycles and conservation. Trout eggs are delivered to classrooms. The students  monitor the fish growth, the water quality in the tank, and learn about fish life cycles. Then the hatched fry are  released into a local pond.  Classes can also take trips to the Oak Springs Hatchery where they learn about life cycles and help with egg collection.
