Upcoming Event Schedule for August at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery

Although the summer may seem to be coming to an end with the start

of school, there is still plenty of time, and several great events, taking

place at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery! So check out the

following and make plans to be a part of our hatchery happenings! 


Join us on Saturday, August 6th, 2011 from 1p.m. 3 p.m. CST as

the hatchery celebrates the birthday of one of the greatest outdoor

icons of all times Smokey Bear! With cupcakes and free goodies,

bring your family and friends and stop in anytime from 1p.m. 3 p.m.

CST for a chance to meet the birthday bear himself! You’ll also learn

more about the history of the real Smokey Bear and his campaign

message on forest fire prevention. There will be cake and plenty of

time to tour the hatchery, including the Visitor/Environmental

Education Center, so don’t miss out on all the fun!


Things have changed through the years, and with busy schedules and

numerous activities filling up one’s schedule, families are challenged

more than ever to seek out ways to eat better, exercise more and

spend time together. This in mind, couldn’t we all use a hand helping

our kids eat better and move more? If you are nodding in agreement,

come learn practical tools that really work in a fun and friendly

atmosphere! Make plans to mark off August 8th, 15th, 22nd and

29th, 2011 as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wolf Creek

National Fish Hatchery, in partnership with the Russell County Public

Library, offers an engaging four week parent session offered through

the We Can! Program. We Can!, which stands for Ways to Enhance

Children’s Activity and Nutrition, offers this training, aimed

specifically at parents of children ages 7 through 13, free of charge.

Meetings will be held at the Jamestown Public Library each of the 4

Monday’s listed above, from 5 p.m. 6 p.m. CST, and all

participants will enjoy a bevy of fun activities, including cooking

demos for quick snacks and meals that kids will eat; a chance to talk

to other parents; a copy of the We Can! Parents Handbook; along

with creative ideas for getting your family active and loving it!
