Hacklebarney TU is currently participating in the Trout in the Classroom program.  We deliver trout fry and/or eggs to participating schools in our geographic area.  We consult with teachers on proper conditions for the fry and then help the students release the fish into the wild.  If you would like more information on this program, please contact Rich Cotterre.
