Group Tours

Our tours can accommodate small groups such as family groups, public & private school groups, scout groups, child care facilities, and home school groups. Below are some of the activities we typically offer, but we try to tailor the tour to what your group is interested in. All of our activities are FREE. The average time for each activity is 30 - 45 minutes.

If you are interested in a tour, please go to the Request Form, and fill out the form. Our group tour coordinator will contact you to set up the tour.


Chilren at Master Casting Station 04262019.jpg

We offer Backyard Bass to our younger attendees. They learn to cast a line with a magnet attached to catch colored fish laying on the ground.

Master casting is where participants are taught how to cast a line with a plastic fish into a target, set at different distances.



Our archery mini class helps to understand the equipment and its use when learning to shoot a bow and arrow. Each student will be shown how to properly hold the bow and place the arrow for shooting. Proper stance is taught along with hitting a bull's eye.

This hike is a must! It is walking up the rock trail directly behind the educational building to get an amazing view of the fish hatchery pools where all the catfish live and breed.

Fish Production
