School is back in session!

Have you ever considered the Genoa National Fish Hatchery as a destination for a school field trip? If not, you should! We offer age-appropriate outdoor education programs and tours that give students the opportunity to learn about the mighty Mississippi River, fish, mussels, local history and much more. Students will get the chance to hold live Lake Sturgeon, learn about different fish and mussel species and feed our hungry Rainbow Trout. There are many other activities available like exploring the Great River Road Interpretive Center by completing a scavenger hunt, hiking our nature trails, learning about birds, and identifying animal tracks. Field trips are offered throughout the entire year and can be customized for the changing seasons. We can now even offer the opportunity for students to try snowshoeing during the winter months! If any of these activities sound interesting, please contact Erica Rasmussen or 608-689-2605 to set up your field trip. Hope to see you soon! By: Erica Rasmussen
