MN TROUT IN THE CLASSROOM
Minnesota Trout in the Classroom is an educational arm of Minnesota Trout Unlimited. Teachers use trout as a platform to implement educational opportunities for students to learn about watersheds, water quality, fish biology, and wetland ecology in hands-on lessons and field days. Through our grant funding, TIC is able to provide aquarium equipment to teachers. Classes will raise trout from eggs to fingerlings, which the students release into a designated trout stream or pond in the spring.
This program will continue to grow as more teachers join in the coming years! Today there are over 30 tanks in schools and nature centers across Minnesota – from Northome in the far reaches of northern MN to Winona and Rochester in the south.
New Wave Aquaria handles all equipment needs for the MN Trout in the Classroom Program. This includes detailed instructions on how to set up and take down your equipment, how to properly store it between uses, and how to maintain your tank. We also provide ongoing support and assistance as needed.
