Hatchery Outdoor Program
Starting in 2008 the hatchery began the HOP program, which receives approximately 300 -375 visitors. This program is held annually during the month of May and lasts two to three weeks. This program is put on for the local school districts every year in the spring. The program is to draw middle-school aged children into the outdoors by the various activities and show many of the “naturally” fun things that can be done while outdoors.
Contact Inks Dam for more information. For more information on some of the activities included in the program visit our Environmental Education page.
In 2012 Inks Dam had approximately 19,000 visitors of all ages at the property with an additional 1,000 youth with off-sight education related programs. The hatchery also participates in community events outside the hatchery. Events we have participated in previously are listed below (participation is not guaranteed every year).
