Little Friends of the River 2012-2013

The first year the program was piloted, 2012-2013, two schools participated: BronxWorks and Mid-Bronx Headstart. The Museum’s involvement in this first year of programming was limited to providing some assistance in acquiring tank equipment and professional development training via Trout in the Classroom partners.



“As a teacher who participated in the Little Friends of the River in 2012-2013 and the Rivers on the Go! program, I feel very strongly that this program gives our children the kind of hands on interactive experience that is both motivating and educational. It also teaches the children responsibility because they take ownership of the trout. Children loved taking care of the trout and watching them grow. The children and teachers also liked going on the Rivers on the Go! bus, too. It helped us as teachers teach science. I am glad we are going to do the program again this year. Thank you Bronx Children's Museum and Trout in the Classroom!”

―Mairenys Liriano, South Bronx Headstart Teacher
