Go Fish! Have you visited the new education center in Perry?
Great things are happening in Perry—and now that the weather is nice, we suggest that you check out the Go Fish Education Center that opened several years ago near the fairgrounds. Governor Sonny Perdue, along with additional special guests, cut the celebratory ribbon at the official dedication ceremony for the Go Fish Education Center on October 7, 2010.
The Go Fish website tells us:
The Go Fish Education Center is designed to help visitors take an educational journey through Georgia’s watersheds to learn about our diverse aquatic wildlife, their natural habitats and the impacts of water pollution. Beyond that, the Center is a place that serves as a great resource of fishing information for any level of angler – where to go, what to use and when. When there, check out the 200,000 gallon aquarium, the new indoor/outdoor hatchery, the movie about the importance of fishing and aquatic resources in Georgia, and the catch and release casting pond stocked year-round with hybrid striped bass, bluegill, and channel catfish.
