25January Trout in the Classroom

Students, whose teachers sign up for Trout In The Classroom, become "foster parents" to about 30 rainbow trout, which they receive in the eyed-egg stage. The students are responsible for raising their brood to fry or fingerling size.

As the fish are growing, Salmon Enhancement staff or volunteers visit the classrooms, teaching about salmonid life-cycles and the importance of a healthy watershed for human and animal habitats. Presentations include Salmon and Steelhead Lifecycle, We All Live in a Watershed, the use of GPS for watershed restoration, and the importance of water quality by analyzing water content and macro-invertebrates.
