This video is an amazing testament to the wonderful success TIC was for all who participated. Joe Bach and Brad Bowman provided the inspiration, Joe, Brad, and so many others brought the idea to reality, and the children’s interest and enthusiasm made it all worthwhile. I was so impressed to see the excitement and energy of the children as they got off the buses in anticipation of releasing their trout. Some of the children were even emotional as they released their trout into the stream.
Brad and all the teachers involved demonstrated how TIC can work successfully and make a lasting impact. This project will be on-going as they monitor the stream, raise more trout to release, and introduce even more children to the importance of conservationism and being good stewards of our resources.
Congratulations and hats off to all who were involved,
