In Episode 5 of our new Podcast, The CURRENT Podcast, host Will Rice visited with Bianca McGrath-Martinez from CTU, Bill Gilmore and Guy Grace from Littleton Public Schools to talk about the Trout in the Classroom program. This environmental education program allows for elementary, middle, and high school students to raise rainbow trout eggs to fry as a vehicle to understand ecosystems. At the end of the program, the students typically release the fry into a local fishery with help from CPW.
However, because of COVID-19, the fate of the program's trout with the recent shutdown of schools was up in the air. Thanks to Denver Trout Unlimited, here's an update from two of the Trout in the Classroom teachers from Wilder Elementary. Check out the short video below!
