What is Trout in the Classroom?

Trout in the Classroom Prezi

Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is an environmental education program in which students raise trout from eggs to fry. In the process, students learn about stream ecosystems by monitoring tank water quality, and engaging in stream habitat study. It is wonderful means of fostering stewardship of students' local stream environments.

Students end the year by releasing their trout in a state-approved stream near the school or within a nearby watershed.
