Spout Run Journal April 2016: Powhatan's Trout in the Classroom
A flagship program of Trout Unlimited's Youth Education efforts, Trout in the Classroom (TIC) offers students of all ages a chance to raise salmonids in a classroom setting and then release them into a nearby stream or river. Caring for the fish starts to foster a conservation ethic in the students, and the act of walking to a streambank and directly releasing the fingerlings into the water makes a concrete connection between caring for the fish and caring for the water.
