We have some great educational opportunities for people of all ages. Whether you want a rain garden on your property or would like to volunteer you are in the right spot.
Calling all Lynnwood K-12 educators! We have some great ways to teach students about salmon, water quality, and how our actions on land affect our salmon, orcas, and other downstream wildlife.
Salmon in the classroom
Raise salmon in your own classroom! Receive fertilized Coho salmon eggs and raise them until they are ready to be released into the wild. Visit our hatchery for a field trip to release your own fish and see the process at a larger scale. Classroom presentations are also available.
Salmon release field trip
Can’t raise your own fish in the classroom? Don’t worry, the city has plenty of fish for your students to release! Visit the city of Lynnwood’s hatchery and environmental education center to learn about water quality, native plants, the salmon life cycle, and get a chance to release a salmon into the wild!
The City of Lynnwood partners with Nature Vision to offer a wide range of programs including nature in the classroom, habitat connections, and watershed programs.

The City of Lynnwood has partnered with the Snohomish Conservation District to bring rain gardens to Lynnwood.
This partnership allows us to bring rain gardens to Lynnwood at very little cost to homeowners.
Benefits of rain gardens:
- Lowers risk of flooding
- Filters water runoff
- Provides habitat
- Protects salmon and wildlife
Would you like a rain garden at your home, business, school, community center, or place of worship?

Storm Drain Marking
Do you know where storm drains lead? Many people think storm drains carry water to a local sewer plant to be treated. In fact, this water flows right into local waterways. This direct flow of untreated water is the leading cause of pollution in the Puget Sound area.
To educate the public, the City is labeling storm drains that tell you where this water goes. You can help us with this effort!
Contact Cameron Coronado to volunteer to install storm drain markers around Lynnwood at ccoronado@LynnwoodWA.gov
