Trout in the Classroom

We provide financial and manpower support for this environmental education program. Students in grades K-12 raise trout from eggs to fry, monitor tank water quality, study stream habitat, begin to foster a conservation ethic, learn to appreciate water resources and to understand ecosystems.  In the fall we receive trout eggs from a local fish hatchery.  Fish are fed daily and the aquarium and the water quality are maintained weekly.  In the spring, on a school sponsored field trip, the trout are released in a state-approved stream or river.  As you would expect, students are simply fascinated with the hatching process.
