Marshall-Putnam SWCD Annual Fish Sale

We are happy to announce our annual fish sale! We are having 2 sales this fall – the standard fish sale and a cold water fish sale. Both are listed on the order form for convenience. Please call the office if you have any questions.

Due to rising costs and other untimely events, the district will no longer be holding a tree & plant sale. There are other county SWCD’s that do hold these sales. Please call and get information if you’d like it – you do not have to live in that county to purchase.

The fish sale will be held as it was last year. The fish truck will be out in front of the building at 8am.
