Trout Grow on Trees®

An environmental education program that creates enthusiasm!

Fish in jar

Trout Grow on Trees® is a hands-on environmental education program designed to teach children about the connection between healthy forests, healthy streams and healthy trout populations.

The Trout Grow on Trees® program was created by Stroud Water Research Center’s Executive Director, Dr. Bernard Sweeney in 2013. First launched at a trout release day at Pocopson Elementary in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the program has received much interest and enthusiasm from teachers and students.

Elementary school students prepare to release the fish as part of an environmental education program.

Trout Grow on Trees® easily compliments ongoing Trout in the Classroom programs, tree planting activities, macroinvertebrate monitoring, or can stand alone.
