Warm Springs Fish Hatchery

Heidi and Tray at the Warm Springs National Fish HatcheryAs we left Warm Springs I spotted a sign that said “National Fish Hatchery” so I turned and followed that road. I guess I figured if it was an official national hatchery there must be something special about it. It turned out to be a great little side trip to our Little White House excursion.

The hatchery had a small aquarium with local fresh water fish, a carnivorous plants garden, several ponds full of fish, and a pond with an alligator and some snapping turtles. Trey chased a couple geese who were looking for bread crumbs meant for fish and then found a stick which he pretended to fish with (something NOT allowed at a hatchery).
