The following proposal was developed by Bob Zybach, NW Maps Co., and Sue Borden, OSU SMILE Program, for the Siletz Middle School SMILE Program in September, 1997 as a demonstration project for Oregon Websites and Watershed Project, Inc. The proposal was discussed at length with Siletz School administrators, staff, and teachers on October 1, 1997 at Siletz School. In addition to the text, the discussion was also focused on river and sub-basin maps, and landowner permission and field data forms that would be needed for the project. Mike Darcy, Siletz principal, Randy Wiese, Siletz Middle School SMILE Program, and Bonnie Weaver, Siletz School computer lab, agreed to work cooperatively on the project as described. Classroom on the Siletz River Day on May 7, 1998 was a direct result of this proposal.

PEAS Salmon Catch and Map Project Proposal

October 1, 1997


The PEAS Catch and Map Salmon Program is a pilot project established on the Siletz River involving local K-12 school children. It is designed to provide students with practical academic and employment skills and the local community and general public with useful resource management data.

This project is intended to work within existing formal and informal curricula, including the OSU SMILE program, the ODF&W STEP program, the Oregon Education Plan for the 21st Century, the Governor's Coho Salmon Recovery Initiative and local job training programs. The project is intended to be long-term and eventually involve all Siletz area residents, landowners, resource managers, and others with an interest in the natural and cultural environment of the Siletz River watershed.
