Recent upgrades to the original historical facility will enable the hatchery to remain viable far into the future. These have included the reconstruction of the Jessup Mill Pond Dam, a new hatchery water intake and spillway, construction of influent and effluent water treatment facilities, a raised mound septic system and pump station, renovation of the historic hatchery building, construction of a nature trail and streamside amphitheater, a new multi-use pavilion, and an Arbor Day Foundation Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
Two other FWS programs are co-located at the hatchery, Partners for Fish & Wildlife and Montana Ecological Services. Together the three Service programs form the Creston Fish and Wildlife Center.
We welcome you to visit our hatchery, take a nature hike around the grounds and learn about the wonders of the aquatic world around us.
