Fishing columnist Martin Armstrong recently shared an account of a Trout in the Classroom event at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo.
“This is fun! I caught six fish,” boasted a very happy Danielle Nichols as she reeled in her last fish from Bunnells Pond in Bridgeport.
Danielle, age 13, and 15 other students from Bridgeport’s Park City Prep and Bridge Academy are participants in the Beardsley Zoo’s Trout In The Classroom (TIC) program. Recently the students teamed up with the Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE) program for a day of hands on learning and some fishing.
