BOSTON (AP) — State wildlife officials are inviting the public, including kids on school vacation, to help stock local ponds with trout.

The public can view the fish up close and while also learn about some nearby spots for anglers.

On Tuesday, officials will be stocking trout at 11 a.m. at Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester and at the Whitehall Reservoir in Hopkinton at 1 p.m.

There will be two trout stocking events Wednesday in Plymouth — at Long Pond at 10 a.m. and Little Pond at 11 a.m.

On Thursday, there will be another two trout stocking events — at Hampton Ponds in Westfield at 10:30 a.m. and Stockbridge Bowl in Stockbridge at 1:30 p.m.

MassWildlife will stock nearly 500,000 hatchery-raised brook, brown, rainbow, and tiger trout statewide this spring.
