This pond was flooded in April 2017, and has debris and trash in it so they are going to have to drain and clean it. The ducks seemed to enjoy it anyway.
The kids learned about the life cycles of Monarch butterflies and Rainbow trout.
The Visitor's Center was built in 2007, and is modeled after the original Visitor's Center that was torn down in the 1950s. We enjoyed walking around the grounds and checking everything out. Water for the hatchery comes partially from nearby Hearrell Spring which provides 300 gallons of water per minute.
The Visitor's Center has a large aquarium and several learning stations that the kids enjoyed.
