Nov. 2 PAC hike goes to Pisgah National Forest for 5-mile hikePublished 3:19pm Friday, October 26, 2012
The center’s theme is directly in line with that of the work conducted at the fish hatchery. The NCWRC raises thousands of trout at this site. These trout are destined for release in Western North Carolina streams, providing recreational opportunities, as well as an important component of the food chain.
