Trout In (and Out of) the Classroom

On Monday we had our first fall river clean-up and stocking on the North Mills River.   Thank you to everyone who came out to help keep this beginner friendly fishery clean and healthy.    An added treat this month was the support of students from one of our Trout in the Classroom programs.  Students, teachers and parents from The Learning Community School pitched in  and got a chance to practice a little environmental stewardship and to see what those tiny eggs they currently have in their classroom will grow up to be.  The kids had clearly done their homework.   I conducted a little stream-side quiz and got quick, correct  answers explaining facts like “A Brook Trout is not really a trout, it’s a Char” and “Brown Trout are not from America, they came from Germany.”    Of course, you all already knew that…..right?
