Sally the Salmon is an eco-educational adventure taking Chipper, a curious city squirrel, below the surface to experience the life of a salmon.

Additionally, the APP includes bonus coloring pages to offer children extra activities and excite conversation about exploring the great outdoors as a family.

“Sally the Salmon is an eco-educational adventure inspiring respect for nature in young children,” says creator Stephanie Rach. “Our goal is to playfully connect children, in a variety of ways, so they will ask their parents to go on walks, hikes, or camping trips.” For teachers the story is correlated meeting national academic standards in science, social skills, and arts & literature.
