Abraxas I has partnered with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to stock local streams with trout for the past 13 years! This season included 20 days of stocking, 64 A1 students performing a total of 781 community service hours by stocking 19 streams in Forest, Warren, McKean, Elk, Jefferson, Venango and Crawford counties with approximately 59,000 trout! In addition to earning community service hours each youth receives a conservation award patch and certificate from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. Through our work with PAFBC, we have also received an Institutional Fishing License which enables us to take our students fishing.
