Back in January we shared a post about the arrival of ~425 trout eggs. Since then, Mr. Forrest and his science students have been taking care of them through each phase of their growth, from eggs to alevin to fry.
Yesterday, in a bittersweet moment, we released them all into the Hammonassett River to spend the rest of their lives in their new home in the wild!
We love how this project is hands-on and teaches about life cycles, but it’s also a great lesson in the challenges of responsibility and being “trout parents.”
Big thanks to the students involved, as well as Mr. Forrest and Mr. Maragliano for another job well done!
