Brown Trout Released to New Home in Blackledge River!

Glastonbury-E. Hartford Magnet School fourth graders released their precious, young Brown Trout into the Blackledge River, Marlborough, CT. They carefully analyzed water chemistry, temperature and biological indicators of river health, Thanks to the Trout in the Classroom project volunteers, GEMS students received their Brown Trout eggs in November and students cared for the fish until their recent river release in April. The student project is part of a larger study of life cycles and river ecosystems.
