The Trout Have Arrived!

In the past week, four schools: Grayson Highlands School, Piney Creek School, Galax High School and Carroll County High School have received Brook trout! As part of the Trout in the Classroom program, classrooms set up 55 gallon tanks to create a suitable habitat for trout. The lessons of the program include life cycle of trout, habitat, water quality, scientific monitoring and aquaculture. The long-term goal is to reconnect an increasingly urbanized population of youth to the system of streams, rivers, and watersheds that sustain them.
