Trout in the ClassroomGrades K-12
Through the process of hatching trout eggs and releasing fish in to an approved waterway, students gain a deep understanding of the importance of clean habitat, what animals need to survive, and the role students can play to make this happen. Teachers complete a workshop in December and receive financial and volunteer assistance through North Bay Trout Unlimited, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, MMWD, One Tam, and AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Project. For information, visit the classroom aquarium website or email Ethan Rotman, California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Bring Mt. Tam to your next school or community event. The OneTam Roving Ranger is a mobile trailhead that features a topographic model of Mt. Tamalpais, educational resources about the flora and fauna of the mountain, an instant-photo station, surround sound, and an on-board spigot for filling water bottles.
