What does it take to raise over 1.5 million trout each year?! You can find out at the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery at Bow Habitat Station.

Fish Feedings

Fish feedings at the indoor pond are fun for all ages, from little ones to grandparents. Come with the family, enjoy a unique date, or head for a morning out with your littles and friends. Kids 3 and under are free, making it a neat excursion for young families. The fish enjoy the procedure and come close to you, as they know what comes next! Everyone gets a small bowl of food to toss to the fish and kids love watching the fish jump over each other to eat it. You’ll be feeding thousands of rainbow trout in one feeding! The educators who run the fish feedings can answer all of your fish-focussed questions.

When: Fridays and Saturdays
Time: 10 am  – 3 pm
Fee: $2.00 +tax per person (3 and under free with paid adult)
