On Sunday May 3rd, West Liberty-Salem students took part in a Mad River water quality monitoring and brown trout release. High School science students raised brown trout from eggs and then released the fry into the Mad River from Lions Park in West Liberty. Students also met with a representative from Trout Unlimited where they participated in sampling organisms from the Mad River and documenting water quality. *all photo credits go to Scott Davis*
