Students from KAS Prep High School joined students from County Prep to release trout into the Manasquan River in Wall Township, NJ. The trout were raised in the classroom from eggs and their release marks the culminating activity of a state sponsored program known as “Trout in the Classroom”. The district has been a participant in this program for more than ten years. The Hudson County Schools of Technology remains committed to the advancement of environmental education in the state of New Jersey and is proud to participate with the New Jersey Division of Wildlife and Trout Unlimited to bring this worthwhile program to fruition. Teachers Nicholas LaVolpe, Stephanie Szymanski, Ken Ruskowski, along with their students, visited the Manasquan Reservoir Environmental Center and received a guided boat tour of the Manasquan Reservoir. The students were introduced to the history and wildlife in the area and were privileged to come within 30 yards of a beautiful bald eagle perched in a tree.
