Bucks County Treasurer Kris Ballerini teamed up with volunteers and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission this week to help stock the Delaware Canal ahead of trout season’s opening day on April 3rd.
“COVID took so many things away from us in 2020, but our connection to the outdoors seems only to have grown stronger,” Ballerini said. “It’s great to see, more and more folks taking advantage of the beauty that Bucks County has to offer.”
