Galena Fish Hatchery

Tune with the Nevada Science Center and Ranger Andy Brown presents virtually the historic Galena Fish Hatchery - from its role of revitalizing a decimated fishery in the Truckee Meadows following the Comstock mining era, to how it has become a treasured modern-day community resource. Ranger Andy is one of eight Park Rangers who protect and preserve Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space over 12,000 acres of Washoe County Parks, trails and open space. Stationed in the Mt. Rose District at Galena Creek Regional Park, "Ranger Andy" has over 20 years of combined experience in park maintenance and operations. A native of Northern Nevada, Andy and his wife along with their three young daughters, often spend their free time immersed in the natural splendor that Nevada's wilder places have to offer, often camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and exploring the back roads.
