CES Trout Release!!
On Thursday, May 19th, 50 students from Centreville ES went on a Trout release with the Trout in the Classroom program. We received the eggs in October and have taken care of them until release as Fry. Their challenge was to determine the health of the stream, using the process of environmental scientists.
A huge thank you goes out to the Trout in the Classroom Program and Luckstone Quarry (who volunteered to help with our fieldtrip) for helping make this day a huge success.
