No, Easter has not come early.
Today I was one of the Trout Unlimited members who volunteered to deliver eggs to local schools as part of TU’s Trout In The Classroom program. New Jersey has 120 such tanks across the state, and I was lucky enough to deliver to two local schools.
I met other TU volunteers at the local trout hatchery this morning to gather supplies and fresh eggs for delivery. I brought a small cooler, ice pack and a towel to separate the eggs from the ice. I then took the eggs and fish food to my assigned schools.
If you haven’t had a chance to volunteer, this is a great way to see the grassroots side of TU and to explain to future generations the importance of TU’s mission and the impact of projects like this on local streams. Enjoy!
