The Grayling Fish Hatchery, a former  private and then State hatchery, is owned and operated by the Crawford County Recreation Authority.  It was the county's desire to transform this fish hatchery site into a community fee fishing park museum and interpretive site.  Mainstream Resources was retained to create a "natural" stream channel which could be used for interpretive and educational purposes. 

Mainstream Resources was the general contractor and provided turnkey design and construction services for this project.
