Discover: Fish

Children journey through the lifecycle of a rainbow trout and discover the unique patterns of Albertan fish. This hands-on program ignites investigative exploration by immersing children in the life of a rainbow trout from egg to adult while discovering how fish survive in Alberta’s aquatic ecosystems.
