The Enviromobile and the Environmental Education Center provide environmental education experiences as well as special programs throughout the year!
If you are interested in having one of our educators speak at your group or event, please call our office at (219) 853-2420 to make arrangements.
We are not currently hosting the Capathon program. While we have not ruled out the possible return of this program in the future, if you do not wish to store caps, they should be thrown out as they are not recyclable in your curbside bin. Please keep all caps bagged and place them in the garbage for your next scheduled trash pick-up. As always, we greatly appreciate your continued support of our programs.
TROUT IN THE CLASSROOM (TIC)
The 2019-2020 school year marks the 12th anniversary of TIC! Our clean water trout in the classroom program will continue as a traveling program! Each school year we will select a new school to host our 39-gallon fish tank and raise Rainbow Trout from egg to fry!
Beginning April 2019, you may fill out a Trout in the Classroom Application to become a host school or classroom! LCSWMD educators provide tank set up and troubleshooting, student training & hands-on programming along with other resources while you care for the tank and young Rainbow Trout from September through May.
YOU create your classroom’s / school’s unique experience. The Lake County Solid Waste Management District sponsors the program and provides the tank supplies, fish eggs, educational, and technical support.
