The NYC Department of Environmental Protection on Wednesday, May 8 joined Trout Unlimited, Bronx Children’s Museum, 12th graders from World View High School and pre-K students from BronxWorks to release juvenile trout that the students have raised in their classroom since October 2018.

Nearly 125 fingerlings were released into the Cross River which feeds into Cross River Reservoir, part of NYC’s drinking water system.
