For the past several months, Wading River School students raised 65
healthy trout from eggs to help restock depleted local supplies in a
special partnership that combines learning about the life cycle of
animals in the local ecosystem with making a real-world impact.
Exploring their new environment, the trout were released by members of
Wading River’s Science Olympiad Club in the Schiff Scout Reservation in
Wading River School’s security guard, Mr. William Schaefer, volunteered
his time to help lead this project along with Mrs. Mary Anne McCarrick,
the Science Olympiad Club adviser.
