Harlan Kredit, High School Science Teacher
Follow the 8 miles of Fishtrap Creek's winding waters and you will find yourself in Mr. Kredit's classroom. "A major emphasis of my teaching has always been to use the outdoors as a significant part of my classroom," Harlan Kredit says, who teaches high school science at Lynden Christian School in Washington. Look around this open-air classroom and you will witness 25 years of Mr. Kredit's commitment to both environmental education and the restoration the habitat's salmon run. As a kid, Harlan would look out at the stream swarming with salmon but as he got older and the number of fish started to dwindle, he realized that action had to be taken. Knowing that 2 heads were better than 1, Mr. Kredit figured that 2,000 students could make more of a difference than he could alone. "I am determined to get Fishtrap Creek back to the way it was and collectively make a difference," Harlan says. Each year, Mr. Kredit teaches his students about biology and the environment by working on the Salmon Restoration Project with various local, state, and national organizations. "Every year we focus on a new aspect of the project," Mr. Kredit explains. Projects range from water quality testing to planting trees and shrubs to labeling storm drains (14,000 to be exact). In addition, Mr. Kredit's classes raise and release 50,000 coho salmon into the stream annually. With 44 years of teaching behind his belt, Mr. Kredit knows just what it takes to get his student's involved - a reason. His passion for the salmon of Washington's river system inspire his students to get "get down and get dirty" and become stewards for the planet. "There aren't many excuses for not getting involved," Mr. Kredit tells his students.

LCHS science teacher, Mr. Harlan Kredit, will guide you in a two-part class focused on astronomy and the study of God's universe.


"All four teams being here makes it a special experience for everybody," former Lynden Christian athletic director and current WIAA Executive Board member Harlan Kredit said.
"It's been great for the kids and great for the community. The fans from both schools have been so supportive of each other over the years, and especially this week. "This has truly been a special week," Kredit said. "The cheerleaders have done things together. "There's a long history of basketball in Lynden," Kredit said. "Everybody has a grandfather, an uncle, an aunt that played, and it all fits into who we are as a community." And if there is another winner, besides the Lyncs and Lions, it's probably the tourism industry of Yakima, which has welcomed the folks from Lynden with open arms. "I think you saw a whole lot more Lynden people here this week than you saw people from other cities that are much closer to here in Yakima," Kredit said.
