Hiking Trails
In March 2007 New Marlborough's Berkshire Fish Hatchery was recognized at a ceremony held in Washington, D.C. Members of the Hatchery Foundation were given a Certificate of Appreciation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and recognized for their role in the first and only all-volunteer operated federal fish hatchery in the nation. A core group of Foundation members come up to the Hatchery on a daily basis - feeding fish, cleaning tanks, collecting data, mowing the lawn, fixing buildings and doing anything else that needs to be done.
