How to Get Involved

Teachers: The first step for teachers to participate in the program is to attend a workshop. Attending a workshop is mandatory for teachers in order to participate in the program. Workshops can vary by time and location. Workshops integrated with link opens in new windowWILD Aquatic are longer. There is a cost associate with the program for equipment to raise the trout. Many teachers obtain grants or funding through other sources to help cover the cost of equipment.

Volunteers: Help is needed in a variety of ways including delivering eggs to schools, classroom presentations, and assisting with release field trips. Angling Clubs and other organizations may donate their time and/or resources. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or sponsor for this program please contact your regional coordinator.
