Agencies to Dedicate New Battle Creek Salmon Trail

Sep. 23, 2010

On Thursday, Sept. 30, representatives from both state and federal government will dedicate a new creekside hiking trail to the children of Shasta and Tehama counties. The dedication ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Coleman National Fish Hatchery (NFH) in Anderson, Calif.

The two-mile Battle Creek Salmon Trail connects the hatchery, which is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), with the Battle Creek Wildlife Area, managed by the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG). The trail was created by both agencies, with assistance from the Friends of Coleman NFH, to provide children with opportunities to connect with nature during their traditional class tours of the hatchery.

Friends of Coleman NFH President Jack Blanke says he hopes this walking trail will give children and families another opportunity to explore the outdoors and see wildlife.
