Trout Unlimited’s “Trout in the Classroom” program is a nationwide program designed to connect students with their watersheds.
Students in grades K – 12 raise trout from eggs to fingerlings and then release them into a state-approved cold water stream or lake.
The Maryland “Trout in the Classroom” program has developed a partnership between the Potomac-Patuxent Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Department of Natural Resources. DNR’s Aquatic Resource Education (ARE) Program has provided background information on several trout species, as well as lesson plans correlated to the Maryland State Curriculum and Environmental Literacy standards. In addition, teachers wishing to take part in the program can apply for an ARE grant to cover the cost of equipment and other expenses.
