A Note of Thanks during our COVID-19 Precautions
The Board of Directors of the Friends group are thankful for the support we receive from Onondaga County and our wonderful CNY community. While the Hatchery is not currently hosting any events due to COVID-19, we continue to work behind the scenes to support the Hatchery and its mission. We look forward to a time when it is safe to resume fishing activities and events at the Hatchery! Warmest regards from the Friends of Carpenter’s Brook Fish Hatchery.
Portable Trout Pool
In April 2017 the Friends group received a very generous donation of $5,000 from Trout Unlimited, Iroquois Chapter intended for the purchase of a new portable Trout Pool. The old pool had been in use for community outreach for many years and was in need of significant and costly repair. We were also able to enlist the services of wildlife artist Tom Lenweaver to help us design vinyl side panels for the new pool to promote the Hatchery and to protect the lining of the pool itself. Tom donated his time and design to the Friends group. With the help of Paratore Signs of Syracuse, and using funds generated from BassPro Shops customer donations, Hatchery events, and Membership fees, we printed the vinyl panels. The result is quite beautiful and we’re very happy to have the pool available for future community outreach fishing events.
Please consider supporting the Hatchery through one of our Membership options. We’ve modernized our membership process and encourage those interested, and able, to pay their donations and membership fees online. Join us for another exciting year at the Hatchery! Join here…
