Students Visit Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery

Fish Hatchery Trip

 GT Science Identified Students visited the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery as part of their LEAP Day (Learning Enrichment Activity Program). Students spend time in the center's classrooms learning about purpose of Wolf Creek Dam, the Fish Hatchery and their environmental program.   Wolf Creek Dam was created by the National Government for the purpose of flood control, to generate power and provide recreation to the area.  The National Fish Hatchery supplies trout to fresh water streams throughout the region.  There are three types of trout grown at the hatchery; rainbow, brown and brook. Students visited the hatchery section and learned about the process from eggs, to fingerlings, to raceway development areas.   Students also "met" the resident black snake and Ranger the Skunk. In the photo with the snake are: Trinity Burkett, Colton Correll, and Caden Maynard.
