Partner Program: 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 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.
