Most of the following photos were taken by Anne Farrell-Matthews, SWOCC staff photographer, on April 24, 2018 during a SWOCC Forest Recreation class field trip to the Millicoma Fish Hatchery. This field trip was hosted by Antonio Salgado, Assistant District Fish Biologist, Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW) and STEP (Salmon Trout Enhancement Program) Director for the Coos River system, and by Gary Vonderohe, Assistant District Fish Biologist, ODFW. The Coos River system includes the West Fork of the Millicoma River, draining much of the Elliott State Forest. The Millicoma Hatchery was established by ODFW and STEP in 1991 primarily for educational and interpretive purposes.  Two versions of the 2018 Millicoma Hatchery Field Trip Handout are available: a 2018 PDF File: 13 pp. with active links and that can be directly printed; and a 2018 Word File: 13 pp. also with active links, and that can be edited and modified for future educational field trips.

This webpage is being expanded in 2019 in order to document the April 30, 2019 SWOCC Forest Recreation class field trip to the Millicoma Hatchery. The revised tour map is now online and linked below, and the revised handout is focused on this year's addition of Boy Scout Camp Chinook: 2019 PDF File: 7 pp.
