PFBC TO HOST VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE TO HIGHLIGHT LINESVILLE STATE FISH HATCHERY APRIL 15-17

03/25/2021

LINESVILLE, Pa. (March 25) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) invites the public to participate in the 2021 Linesville State Fish Hatchery Virtual Open House on April 15-17, 2021! 

This virtual event will replace the annual in-person open house at the hatchery, which has been canceled for 2021.  Due to continued public health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all PFBC state fish hatcheries remain closed to the public for tours.

The 2021 Linesville State Fish Hatchery Virtual Open House will be hosted on the PFBC Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/PaFishandBoat), and will feature agency experts conducting several informational sessions that would typically be presented in-person at the hatchery's popular open house that attracts thousands of visitors to the facility in Crawford County each spring.

All virtual sessions will be streamed live and provide an opportunity for viewers to offer relevant questions and comments through the PFBC Facebook page.  All comments submitted must be in compliance with the PFBC's social media policy.
