Shad/Herring Awareness & Restoration Program

Plan Field Trip

The Shad and Herring program provides an opportunity for students and teacher throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to turn their science classrooms into working fish hatcheries during the months of April and May. Participants put their scientific knowledge to practical use by learn how to set up and maintain an aquarium full of fish eggs laid by American Shad and native Herring. Students return hatched juveniles to the Anacostia River in an effort to repopulate dwindling fish populations.
