Northville's Fish Hatchery with Mayor Brian Turnbull
The longest-running, last federal Fish Hatchery was right here in Northville! Mayor Turnbull presents on its history, the restoration efforts, and the importance of the health of our waterways.

Mill Race Village
Northville's rivers and lakes contributed significantly to its development. In 1874, Nelson Clark began breeding fish here and the hatchery remained in operation until 1935. Mayor Turnbull will cover its beginnings and recent improvements, and John O'Meara and Alice Baily from Environmental Consulting & Technology will present on the ongoing restoration efforts. Paul H. Young Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Friends of the Rouge, and the Northville Historical Society jointly sponsor this event.
This presentation is free and open to the public. RSVP if you'd like to receive a reminder email.
