Wildflower seeds are available in bird/butterfly mix, hummingbird mix, wildflower mix, fescue mix, and crownvetch mix.

Payment must accompany the order. Trees and seeds may be picked up from 1 to 5 p.m. April 15 or from 8 a.m. to noon April 16 at the Fulton County Fairgrounds.

Fish stocking program

The Conservation District also has several species of fish available for stocking ponds. The deadline to order fish is May 9.

Species available are bluegill, channel catfish, largemouth bass, redear sunfish, yellow perch, fathead minnows and triploid white amur. Payment must accompany the order.

Fish may be picked up Thursday, May 12, at the north end of the Fulton County fairgrounds. Customers will be assigned pick-up times.

To pick up fish, bring a small trash can or five-gallon bucket lined with a new trash bag, filled no more than half full with water from your pond. Five to 10 gallons of water will be needed for each 100 fish ordered.

Fish are guaranteed to be delivered in good condition.

  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
