Wolverine train car

Wolverine railcar at the Oden State Fish Hatchery

Adjacent to the visitor center sits the re-created 1914-1935 Wolverine train car. This historic exhibit depicts how employees of the old Michigan Department of Conservation lived on the train while transporting and stocking fish across the state. Displays include the sleeping berths, a kitchen and several uniquely designed stewardship messages. Computer touch-screen kiosks quiz visitors on the rearing methods for a variety of fish and on the history of fisheries management.
