We are so excited to be partnering with The Innovation Center of SVVSD, Boulder County Parks & Open Space and Colorado Parks & Wildlife on a brand new student led project to reintroduce a state threatened fish species, the Northern Red Bellied Dace, back into the St. Vrain River. The fish used to be more abundant but now it is rare and threatened with extinction. Students will learn how to care for the fish and get them to reproduce successfully. Our team just went to learn techniques from the Colorado Native Aquatic Species Restoration Facility in Alamosa. The conservation class just started this week!

Special thanks to our friends @ CSULB Shark Lab for the wonderful shark jaws and data sheets!
