POW! Trout in the Classroom - LIVE STREAM
Pacheco Trout Tank
Monarch Grove Trout Tank
Rainbow trout, also known as steelhead trout when they successfully migrate to the sea, will provide a thematic foundation to guide students and teachers through the program. Understanding steelhead life cycles and habitat requirements leads to a deep understanding of food webs and the interconnectedness of all life in the watershed and near-shore ecosystems, including humans and our impact.
Third graders receive Trout in the Classroom, including special aquarium equipment to raise trout from eggs to fingerlings. Teacher-led Habitats & Species lessons prepare students for a trout-release field trip, and an engaging field experience on the day of the release helps students anchor the lessons while building connections with the outdoors.
