Inland Deserts Region CAEP: Trout in the Classroom Program

Serving Imperial, Inyo, Mono, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties

How to Get Involved


The first step for teachers to participate in the program is to attend a free workshop. Attending a workshop is mandatory for educators in order to participate in the program. Workshops do vary by time and location. Workshops integrated with link opens in new windowWILD Aquatic are longer. There is a cost associate with the program for equipment to raise the trout. Many teachers obtain grants or funding through other sources to help cover the cost of equipment.
