The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will host a free guided tour of its Bobby N. Setzer State Fish Hatchery on Saturday, Dec. 17, from 9-11 a.m.
The tour is being coordinated by the Commission’s Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education, which is requiring pre-registration for this “behind the scenes” glimpse of how the Commission operates a trout hatchery, from egg production to stockable-sized fish.
The informative program is suitable for all ages and will cover coldwater conservation and trout management practices. Space is limited, however, with pre-registration required by calling 828-877-4423 or signing up online.
The Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education is one of four learning facilities operated by the Commission. Located south of Asheville off U.S. 276 and next to the Davidson River, the Pisgah Center offers free admission, daily showings of an award-winning documentary, and online schedules of upcoming events and conservation activities.
