Colville Fish Hatchery gets new lease on life

A plan to transform the idle Colville Fish Hatchery into an educational and vocational learning center got the green light late last month.
The venerable hatchery, located on a little more than 19 pristine acres along Highway 20 and Third Avenue in east Colville, was acquired by the state of Washington from Stevens County back in 1933 and operated by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for nearly 80 years before it was closed in 2010.

Kiesecker took time out from his schedule as a full-time college student to explain his inventive process.
