This year marks the 9th season of our awarding winning Trout in the Classroom program. Now almost a decade into the program, it is larger and better than ever! The program will consist of 42 tanks this season in 5 counties - Henry, Franklin, Pittsylvania, Patrick and Rockingham. The program will have all three types of trout again this year, Brooks, Browns and Rainbows, and it is expected the program will reach over 4,000 students this year alone! The students can barely contain themselves as the tanks are being set up, wondering when they are going to get the fish.

Join us and watch the uranium mining documentary Hot Water
Dear Dan River Basin Association,
Uranium mining proponents are waging a battle to repeal Virginia's 30-year ban on uranium mining. HOT WATER, which explores the contamination of the ground water, air, and soil of the American Southwest with some of the most toxic substances known to man due to the mining of uranium, is a harrowing preview of what could be in store for Virginia if the ban is lifted.
