DECORAH, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host a public meeting at 6 p.m., May 20, at the Chuck Gipp Decorah Fish Hatchery, 2325 Siewers Spring Road, in Decorah, to discuss a proposal to remove potentially hazardous trees located around the fish hatchery.

The proposal is based on an October 2016 assessment by the Iowa DNR Forestry Bureau which identified the hazardous trees for removal. The report also included a plan to replant trees around the fish hatchery property that are a better fit for a public facility.

Any person attending the public meeting and has special requirements such as those related to mobility or hearing impairments should contact the DNR or ADA Coordinator at 515-725-8200, Relay Iowa TTY Service 800-735-7942, or, and advise of specific needs.
