IT'S TIME for a whole new year! Wow, did that happen fast!
We are very happy to welcome Lansing Elementary and Dryden Middle School this year, under the leadership or Carole Erslev and Patti Jennings, respectively. All of our participating schools are listed in the right-hand column.
I also want to extend big thank you's to our continuing sponsors, TRIAD Foundation of Ithaca, NY. Special mention is also deserved by:
Josh Filter & Michael Lenetsky, Leon Chandler Chapter of Trout Unlimited
Gian Dodici at the US Fish & Wildlife Service's Cortland Office
Ken Osika, at the DEC Bath Hatchery
Ryan Diehl, SUNY Morristown Hatchery
Many of our schools already have aquariums up and running, and ready for trout eggs. All will be ready on schedule!
BROWN TROUT egg delivery will happen on Thursday, October 18.
BROOK TROUT egg delivery is anticipated during the first week of November.
Excited to start it all again!! - Bill Foster
