The fish hatchery at Cumberland Academy of Georgia is used to open the world of science to our students.
Teachers are able to give visual examples of science in this trout hatchery.
Every Spring, trout eggs are delivered to the site and students, teachers and parents become hatchery managers and scientists.
Over 1000 trout eggs are installed in the hatchery for each lifecycle.
The eggs are nurtured and monitored by Cumberland “scientists”.
- Once the trout have hatched and grown, they are released by the students into the Chattahoochee River during a student field trip.
