Pennsylvania Trout in the Classroom Program Support

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

In partnership with the Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited (PATU), the Stroud Center education department provided staffing and other supports to the PA Trout in the Classroom (PA TIC) program, in which over 40,000 students annually raise trout eggs from fingerlings in the classroom while growing their appreciation for coldwater resources. As part of this unique partnership, Stroud Center staff assisted with collaborations between TU Chapters and TIC teachers, administration of the PATU TIC Existing Program Grant, planning of the first-ever PA TIC Summit to connect statewide partners/teachers, and designing a new PA TIC website to enhance its meaningfulness to program participants.
