Our local TU chapter has a very active group of volunteers helping local schools with Trout Unlimited’s Trout in the Classroom program. Teacher’s and students are so excited to see us delivering eggs every winter to raise.

Trout (or Salmon) in the Classroom (TIC or SIC) offers students of all ages a chance to raise Salmonids in a classroom setting and then release them into a nearby stream or river. Caring for the fish fosters a conservation ethic in the students, and the act of walking to a streambank and directly releasing the fingerlings into the water makes a concrete connection between caring for the fish and caring for the water.
