Nevada Department of Wildlife Celebrates Earth Day With Trout Releases

The Nevada Department of Wildlife is celebrating Earth Day Saturday April 22nd, after working with more than 140 schools throughout the state, as part of their “Trout in the Classroom,” program. Now that all of the locally participating school have raised and released their own trout, N-Dow will release the hundreds of fingerling trout that have been reared at the Oxbow Nature Study Area. And they’re inviting everyone to this free public event on the Truckee River. It starts at 11:00 am. in Rock Park, 1515 S. Rock Blvd. in Sparks. You can celebrate Earth Day this year by learning more about the creatures who live in the Truckee River. There will be other activities aimed at discovering more about our precious water resources and the wildlife that depends on them.
