ABC40 Honor Roll – Students Help Stock Quabbin

NEW SALEM, Mass (WGGB) – Students from the Petersham school hauled buckets full of fish from a tank and let them loose in their natural habitat. It’s all part of the states effort to restock the waters before the start of fishing season.

The Quabbin Reservoir was stocked with about five thousand trout including several hundred Rainbow Trout, giving kids a hands on lesson about the balance of nature.

Students from four different area schools have been helping with the restocking since Monday.
