  • A Promise Kept for 75 Years

    1947 LNFH

    2015 was the 75th anniversary of the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery! It was the largest hatchery in the world in 1940.


We are a collection of three hatcheries and a conservation office. Our hatcheries were built in response to the construction of Grand Coulee Dam, as mitigation for the dam's impact. The conservation office has gone through many transformations, becoming part of the Complex when it was organized in 2010. Visit this storymap to learn more...
