Steelhead In the Classroom

Through “Steelheadtrout1 in the Classroom” sponsored by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Trout Unlimited, THS students hatch fish eggs in the classroom to learn about the life cycle of Steelhead Trout, experience the value and diversity of aquatic environments, and learn about ecology and classification.  Second graders take a close look at the balance that must be met to maintain and preserve our local wetland habitat, as well as how their personal actions impact these valuable resources.  As part of the seventh grade Life Science curriculum, THS Upper School students not only better understand genetics, evolution, environmental issues and other biology-related topics, they work with the local non-profit Russian Riverkeepers, and the Russian River watershed to perform field work and do habitat restoration work.
