From fishing to mushroom hunting to geology, we make learning FUN for all ages. All activities are designed to engage participants in life-long learning about trout and their cold-water habitats, and to instill appreciation of the intrinsic beauty, cultural value, and economic benefits of these natural resources. Instructional workshops introduce visitors to new skills that can be further developed. Give it a try here and you may find a new passion for life!
• Basic stream fishing (spin fishing and fly fishing)
• Stream invertebrates
• Wild foods foraging
• Geology, conservation and more!
