PA Trout In the Classroom Announces 2016 Existing Program Recipients

Apr 27, 2016
PA Trout In the Classroom staff and partners are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 Existing Program Grants. Over 25 participating schools applied for grants this year. However, limited available funds made it impossible for staff to award grants to all applicants. Grants were awarded to 14 schools to help offset the costs associated with Release Day Field Trips and one grant was awarded for equipment replacement.
