The Arizona Council and chapters of Trout Unlimited are bringing the excitement of the outdoors to classrooms throughout Arizona with an expanded Trout-In-the-Classroom (TIC) Program. Trout-In-the-Classroom brings nature into the schools by offering students of all ages a chance to raise trout in a classroom setting. Caring for the fish fosters a conservation ethic in the students and a connection between caring for the fish and caring for the water. The program is a unique way to bring lessons about aquatic ecosystems, water quality, life cycles, food, fish biology and fishing recreation into the classroom.
