CalTrout/Americorp Member Taylor Currier helped a boatload (literally) of Tahoe schoolkids understand the impacts of nonnative species on Tahoe’s native fish populations. From the Tahoe Daily Tribune:
“When they weren’t racing around the Dixie’s three decks or staring down into the blue through the glass bottom, the students shuffled through workshops on water conservation, wildlife and forest management taught by representatives from ten different agencies.
I think it’s great that they’re out on the lake or out in nature,” said Taylor Currier, a California Trout Americorp member, who was teaching the kids about aquatic invasive species. “I think these are the memories that stick with kids.”
