Potomac Patuxent Chapter
Trout In The Classroom
With the over 90 locations signed up for 2017-18, we're hoping to line up an increased number of volunteers this year to support the institutions that will have in the Classroom programs. It looks like there will be 21 TIC installations in Montgomery County, 20 in Frederick, 8 in Howard, 5 in Carroll, around 14 in Baltimore, and the rest in Anne Arundel, Harford, Washingtion, Allegany, Charles, Prince Georges and Garrett counties as well as the District of Columbia. This year we are serving elementary, middle and high schools as well as 2 college programs and we expect that more than 3,000 students will receive and incubate fertilized Kamloops rainbow trout eggs, hatch and raise the trout in their classroom aquariums and then release the fingerlings into local streams. Through TIC they learn to appreciate the importance of cold clean water and environmental stewardship. Volunteers are needed to take part in any or all of the following activities:
To volunteer, please send relevant info to Alan Burrows: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Following Message Was Received From the Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources
Thanks to everyone for all your help in making this another TIC success this year. We at DNR certainly feel that the program is extremely helpful as a way to educate the generation that will influence future decisions being made concerning natural resources. The program, as I see it, is the spark that will make the necessary impression on those students fortunate enough to have taken part. Their contributions by way of their trout production will be an added benefit to our local waters.
