The York Suburban Education Foundation (YSEF) is excited to follow YS middle school science teacher Kathleen Green’s seventh grade classroom this year. Green successfully wrote a grant to participate in the Trout in the Classroom program and her trout eggs arrived the first week of November.

The Trout in the Classroom program is made possible through a unique partnership between PA Fish and Boat Commission and PA Council of Trout Unlimited. This partnership, coupled with assistance from local conservation organizations, was created to introduce Pennsylvania students to coldwater resources and their importance to all communities. The partnership also provides brook trout eggs, trout food, technical assistance, curriculum connections and teacher workshops each year.
