The Friends Group

Keeping our eyes on the Hatchery 


The friends group organized in 2004 and incorporated in the great state of Georgia as a nonprofit 501(C)(3). The Group is a member based organization with the mission to assist the hatchery through volunteerism, community service, and education for kids and families. 

Our Friends group is open for new members and volunteers. As a member you will be part of our group that meets regularly to define, discuss, and plan our projects.  Our volunteers usually work on specific projects around the hatchery and assist hatchery staff as needed. All of our Friends group members are considered volunteers so we can all take part in hatchery projects and activities.  Please fill out the contact form if you are interested in membership or volunteering.
