Students help populate trout in Ontelaunee Creek

Thursday, June 21, 2018 by ELSA KERSCHNER in School

Last September, trout eggs were placed in an aquarium at Northwestern Lehigh Middle School.

By the middle of May, they were ready to face life in the wild as fingerlings.

Nestle Waters Deer Park and the Wildlands Conservancy come each year to help the students with a lesson on what lives naturally in Ontelaunee Creek before the fish are released in the water.

Magnifying glasses and microscopes are on tables and pans are filled with the macroinvertebrate animals found by the adults as they wait for the students.
