Support Your School!

This year your student will be participating in a unique hands-on science program known as Trout in the Classroom. This program offers your student the chance to witness first hand in his/her classroom the evolving life cycle of the Rainbow Trout.

Your student will get to observe the eggs hatch into alevin and grow into fry. Along this journey we will participate in environmental science education presentations and activities. The program culminates with a field trip to a local lake where we will release our trout and spend the day doing fun activities at the lake.

We are looking forward to a fun and exciting Trout in the Classroom program! And you can help. Your tax-deductible donation will support the classroom of your choice.

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.
