Get hooked on trout at workshop

- Idaho Statesman

Edition Date: 09/04/08

Science teachers looking for an exciting, hands-on way to engage students in biology, chemistry or ecology may want to become wild about trout.

A Wild about Trout in the Classroom workshop is from 4 to 9 p.m. Sept. 19 and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 20, at the MK Nature Center.

The workshop is designed for classroom teachers who want to raise trout in a classroom aquarium, a program made possible through a partnership between Trout Unlimited and Idaho Fish and Game.

The workshop costs $20, and university credit is available for an additional fee.

For information, call Amy Parrish at Fish and Game at 287-2833.
