Committees

Trout in the Classroom

The club remains active in supporting Trout in the Classroom.  Ron and Ann Privrasky were instrumental in bringing this program to the schools of Western Nevada.  The Nevada Department of Wildlife continues to keep this program active in fourth and fifth grade classes all over Nevada.  This year the club donated funds to bring in a new classroom to Washoe County.  At present there are a total of 200 Trout in the Classroom units in Nevada.  This year the club donated funds to bring in a new classroom to the Double Diamond Elementary School in Washoe County. At present there are a total of 250 Trout in the Classroom units in Nevada. Of these 90 units are located in western Nevada, In southern Nevada, there are 115 units in service. I n Eastern Nevada, there are a total of 45 units.

Trout eggs are provided to the schools from the Gallagher Hatchery in Ruby Valley.  These eggs are available in late January and early February.  The eggs are distributed to the classrooms after NDOW conducts training for the teachers in the proper culture of trout eggs. In this amazing hands on experiment, grade school children get to see the miracle of egg development in their classrooms, learn about trout conservation and participate in the release of live fish to the wilds of Nevada.
