The trout eggs have arrived!

2015-01-28 13.07.04Our trout eggs have arrived for our classroom trout hatching program. Thanks to Mrs. Reed’s husband, Mr. Reed, for driving to the Clackamas ODFW office to pick them up. We will begin to observe their daily development, collect and record data, and learn about trout and their ecosystems in the coming week. In a month or so when they reach the fry stage, we will release them in a nearby private pond. Stay tuned for more “developments!”

Our rainbow trout eggs arrived today, courtesy of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and the Roaring River Hatchery in Scio, Oregon. Each year ODFW makes eggs available to classrooms at no cost. A big thanks to Stuart Reed (Mrs. Reed’s husband) for making the trek to Clackamas to pick up the eggs. Stay tuned for more info about our trout egg hatching project.
