Friends of Pendills Creek Hatchery (FPCH) will be sponsoring a Snowmobile Open House at Pendills Creek National Fish Hatchery on February 2, 2013 from 11 am to 3 pm. The event is open to the public, regardless of their mode of transportation. Snowmobiles are to follow Forest Service Road 3157 north to the hatchery. Hatchery staff will provide tours, and the Friends group will provide hot beverages, soups and sandwiches. Looking forward to seeing those who plan to gear up and hit the trails to Pendills.  Let's hope Mother Nature provides us adequate weather to put a few miles on this winter, or for those who dare not venture too far from blacktop. No matter how you arrive, we're looking forward to it. Travel safe!
