Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is an educational program designed to teach students about the ecology, biology, and history of trout and other aquatic life. View training session from March 5, 2019.

Tahoe teachers and students are offered a unique opportunity to raise threatened Lahontan Cutthroat trout from eggs through their early life stages in their very own classroom. The program is designed to improve teacher and student understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of aquatic ecosystems. As a positive educational tool, this hands-on, interdisciplinary project is appropriate for all grade levels and can easily be integrated into existing classroom curricula.
