Brook trout were the first nonnative species introduced into Yellowstone. Brown trout were later introduced as well. Both brook trout and brown trout spawn in the fall returning to smaller streams to do so. Although they are not native, they have become a part of the Yellowstone ecosystem. This mixed media collage depicts brook trout building a redd. It is the September image found in my 2023 wall calendar. Although it works as a stand-alone image, each design in this collection was created to tell part of a story of connection by following a yellow stone as it is touched by the flora and fauna of Yellowstone National Park. Each image also includes a Native American word for this animal. This image includes the words, “Brown trout migrate to small streams to spawn in the fall.”
