Trout in the Classroom (TIC)

Trout Unlimited chapters in Georgia use the Trout in the Classroom (TIC) program to educate students about the life cycle of trout.

Six schools currently use structured plans to instruct not only in science classes but in all aspects of education during the school year. Math classes do the statistical record-keeping, art classes create tee shirt designs and posters, music classes write songs about the trout and English classes write stories to share with classmates.

The TIC program has been a successful tool around Georgia and nationally to get young people involved with conservation and protection of our coldwater resources.
