Third-grade students completed an engaging science unit on the life cycle of trout by releasing their hatchlings (called 'fry') during an adventurous field trip recently. It was a perfect spring day as the kids gently released 29 trout fry into the seasonal creek below the water flume pouring down from Lake Lagunitas. After we carefully released the tiny fish, we enjoyed a relaxed walk around the lake, exploring and observing nature, and even had a bonus geocaching success!  We ended the day with a picnic lunch, hopping around on rocks and logs, and hiding in redwood fairy rings. Big thanks to our parent chaperones for making this beautiful day possible!
