†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††Trout in the Classroom

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††2012

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† The Trout in the Classroom program is alive and well with WNYTU. 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† There was an issue with ammonia at Springville, resulting in the loss

††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††of many of the trout.  As much as everyone would like for all the eggs

††††††††††††††††††††††††† to hatch and grow to adulthood, itís actually a good lesson for kids to

†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††see that Mother Nature is pretty tough, and the survival rate is still

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† much higher than it would have been in the wild.  Nichols, Frontier, and

†††††††††††††††††††††††† †††Brockport have all been humming along successfully, with around 200

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† browns eating Brockport out of house and home.  Jason Ersing, the

††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††cooperating teacher at Frontier Middle School has an ambitious plan for ††††††††

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† the program.  On June 1st he and the kids and parents will be installing

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† solar panels to provide all the electrical power for the project, putting in

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† a 400 gallon tank, cleaning up the area, painting part of the building, and

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† doing some landscaping.  We would be grateful for any help that anyone

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† could provide.
