Session 4 Manlius Fish Hatchery - Perry Springs


Summary of events

  • Extremely Hot day - about 22 participants with some adults. 
  • We met at Perry Springs, Village of Manlius.  An overview of the hatchery was given by ___________ volunteer.  The history, pictures of fish, birds of prey were shown. Discussion around the constant water temperature and other trout needs.  Students were then broken into groups to tour the different sections - the fry / hatchery section, the minnows/ small fish area, then ponds with the rainbows and brook trout.  Then a short walk to the out door pond , where an aquifer was shown. Many cedar waxwings were visible flying around.  Participants were then given the opportunity to feed the fish.
