Social studies students from Marticville Middle School in Pennsylvania recently participated in the "Trout in the Classroom" program. The students in Brad Aungst's raised fish from eggs and released about 100 1- to 3-inch fingerlings of brook trout into a local stream. The class sampled and studied their tank's water quality and learned about the fish and the community's cold-water resources. The program operates as a partnership between the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited. "We'd like to see it in every school district in the county," said Bob Kutz of Donegal Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
