VICKSBURG, Miss. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District at Enid Lake will host its annual Fish Habitat Day on Feb. 4.
Volunteers will construct and place fish shelters using wooden stakes, natural vegetation, or recycled Christmas trees that provide bedding and cover for fish. Participants are invited to meet at the Enid Lake Field Office at 7 a.m. on the day of the event. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and there will door prizes available after lunch. Volunteers are encouraged to wear warm outdoor clothing and bring gloves.
The winter months are usually ideal for this work because lower lake levels expose mudflats and provide open spaces to create new fish habitats.
