We spend four days in the field teaching kids about the important connection between healthy rivers and fish! Lessons include fish habitat, aquatic macro-invertebrates, bugs and dry flies comparison, and an interactive introduction to fly fishing. We also conduct a riparian walk and map making station to engage kids in understanding the whole riparian ecosystem. Topics incorporate public lands, riparian areas, and environmental stewardship!
WEN partners with WestSlope Chapter Trout Unlimited (WSCTU) annually to bring a native fish, fish habitat, and fly-fishing program to Washington Middle School 7th graders.
