  • Hartland Middle School, in collaboration with the Hartland Land Trust, is participating in the Salmon-in-Schools project for the fifth year.
  • Thanks to a grant from the Farmington River Coordinating Committee, the program was expanded to the Grade 3 classroom in the 2014-2015 school year. 
  • The program involves incubating salmon eggs in chilled aquariums in school classrooms and releasing the young salmon (called "Fry") in approved streams within the Connecticut River Watershed.
  • Approximately 65 schools in Connecticut participate, from Kindergarten to post-secondary level.
