Washington School Trout Club
Pictured are four members of the Trout Club of Washington School. Members of the Trout Club have the responsibility of maintaining the tank and monitoring water chemistry throughout the year. In early May the students will travel to Watchung Reservation to release the trout and spend a day studying the Green Brook stream ecology.
Trout in the Classroom is a science-based program that teaches children about the importance of coldwater conservation through a hands-on approach to learning. Through the process of raising brook trout from eggs to fingerlings, the size they are at release time, students learn about the importance of clean, cold water, not only for the brook trout they are raising, but also for the other organisms, including people.
