To the Editor: Flyfishers thank WACOM

We want to express our sincere gratitude for WACOM’s gift of $400 in November. Your gift allows us to continue our proud tradition of providing a valuable education to children about our water resources and the plants and animals that live in them. Grade school kids here in the Indian Wells Valley love the Trout in the Classroom program because it gives them a chance to learn about the life cycle of trout, what they eat and where they live, and how we need to appreciate and protect our natural resources.

The kids love raising the trout from eggs in their classroom aquarium and then releasing them into the wild on a field trip to a nearby trout stream. Requests for us to support more classes come in every year, and it’s only through donations like yours that our support can grow to meet the demand.

Craig Rae, president
