Carlyle Lake Christmas Tree Recycling Program

Sat, March 03, 2018

The Corps has collected over 1,000 Christmas trees that were discarded after the holiday season.  These trees will be used to form fish reef structures in Carlyle Lake, which will provide breeding areas and protection for young fish.  The structures also encourage growth of algae and zooplankton, two sources of food for young fish.  Recycled Christmas trees make inexpensive yet effective habitat for all types of fish.

Volunteers are needed to assist with the placement of the trees.  Volunteers can assist by helping Corps Rangers build tree reefs or by supplying boats to place the Christmas trees in the lake.  Volunteer contributions will help improve the fish habitat at Carlyle Lake and ensure better fishing opportunities in the future. 

The event will be located at the Dam East High Water Boat Ramp on Saturday, March 24th, starting at 8:30 a.m. For more information on this project, or if you would like to volunteer, contact the Carlyle Lake Project Office at (618) 594-2484 or email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
