Nebraska Game and Parks accepting Trout in the Classroom applications
Applications for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Trout in the Classroom curriculum program are being accepted through Aug. 24.
Certified teachers are encouraged to take part in this innovative program that brings a fish hatchery into the classroom. Students in grades two through 12 can learn about aquatic habitat, water quality, ecosystem interactions, food webs, and life cycles, while hatching and raising rainbow trout.
Scholarships are available to provide assistance with some program costs. Participation and scholarship applications are due Aug. 24. Program details and application materials are available at outdoornebraska.org/troutintheclassroom. The program is sponsored by Game and Parks with funding from the Nebraska Environmental Trust and Nebraska Trout Unlimited Chapter 710.
