As we prepare for upcoming events and projects to enhance and support Hatchery operations our mission remains the same. The Board of Directors of the Friends group are thankful for the support we receive from Onondaga County and our wonderful CNY community. Please visit the Hatchery this year and enjoy all that we have to offer!
New 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.
Our Annual Membership Drive is under way. We’ve modernized our membership process and encourage those interested, and able, to pay their donations and membership fees online. Please consider joining us for another exciting year at the Hatchery! Join here…
