Trout in the Classroom Program
    This year Battle Monument took part in a unique program, called Trout in the Classroom.  (www.troutintheclassroom.org).  Rainbow trout are not native to Maryland, but they are hatched and grown through this program in schools and then released into the waterways throughout the state.
  
We had a large fish tank in the lobby with a smaller tank inside where we housed our trout eggs.  The students and staff eagerly awaited their hatching and when they got big enough, we were able to release them into the large tank.  Students were able to watch them grow, watched water changes and some students even problem solved with what to do when the water got very dirty.
‚Äč
We are scheduled for a trout release on April 30th at Leakin Park and the students are getting excited.
