Lake Tahoe fish hatchery will become home to science exhibit
November 16, 2009
TAHOE CITY – A historic Lake Tahoe fish hatchery will become home to a public science exhibit.
University of California, Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center officials say they secured sufficient funding to open the exhibit in July 2010 in Tahoe City.
UC Davis owns and manages the Field Station, formerly dubbed the Tahoe City Hatchery.
The nearly 90-year old building underwent a $2.1 million renovation in 2008.
The building remained open for UC Davis scientists to use for their Tahoe research, but has been closed to the public.
UC Davis officials say about $350,000 in grants and other funds have been secured in recent months and allowed them to set up the exhibits.
