Do you love nature?  How about fishing?  Yes?  Then I have just the thing for you. The Hudson Highlands  Nature Museum in Cornwall-on-Hudson will be hosting its popular Trout Weekend this Saturday and Sunday, April 1 and 2.  The weekend will be held from noon - 4pm both days at the museum's Wildlife Education Center.

It is going to be a fun fish filled weekend where you will be able to learn all about the brook trout, a native New York fish, and also our official state fish. In celebration, you will be able to take part in activities such as Meet the Brook Trout, which includes feedings.  There will also be crafts and stories.  It's going to be both fun and educational for the whole family.

Members of the Hudson Highlands Museum and children 3 years and under are free. It is only $3 for non members.  For more information, visit or call (845) 534-5506 ext. 204.
