Students learn hands-on through Trout in the Classroom

Thursday, April 30, 2015 — Students in seventh through 12th-grade attending Westwood High School receive hands-on lessons about the environment in which they live through a program called Trout in the Classroom.

During the school year students raise Eagle Lake Trout from eggs to fry and release them into Hamilton Branch, an approved cold-water stream. The eggs are obtained through the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife and Feather River Trout Unlimited.

According to Jessica Suchorski, the science teacher, the educational focus depends on the science class. Some students study water quality, others the anatomy of fish or habitat or lifecycle.
