7th Grade Field Trip

Rawlins County 7th graders toured the Rock Creek Fish Hatchery in Parks, NE. The water supply from the headwaters from Rock Creek allows for the production of both coolwater and warmwater species. The hatchery annually produces rainbow and brown trout, wiper, rock bass, redear sunfish, grass carp, plains topminnow, pearl dace, yellow perch and fathead minnow. The hatchery provides universities with a valuable resource for ongoing research relating to threats faced by these species as a result of habitat loss. The hatchery contributes to the production of nearly half of the trout stocked in Nebraska. Catchable trout, about 10 inches in length, are reared at Rock Creek to be stocked at Lake Ogallala, Rock Creek Lake, Elm Creek and numerous city park ponds in the panhandle and Pine Ridge. 

The students also were given a personal tour of the Rawlins County Historical Museum and Historical Church. While there, they also experienced early 20th century lessons from a One-room schoolhouse. Ami Klein and Deone Horinek sponsored the trip.
