Volunteers Needed to Create Fish Habitat January 5 at Quarry Lakes

The East Bay Regional Park District, Black Bass Action Committee, Boy Scouts of America, and Walton's Pond will host a day of fish habitat improvements at Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 8 a.m.

Thanks to the donation of about 1,000 unsold Christmas trees by East Bay tree vendors, this activity will provide needed habitat for bass, bluegill, and sunfish in Horseshoe Lake, part of Quarry Lakes.

Volunteers can work off that holiday turkey and help the fisheries at the same time by attaching Christmas trees to chains!
Volunteers should arrive at Quarry Lakes at 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 5, 2012 rain or shine. Bring short boots and warm clothes you can get dirty. A breakfast of fruit, rolls, juice, and coffee will start the event along with an orientation on how to accomplish the task ahead! At the conclusion of the project, about 1 p.m., a hot sandwich lunch will be provided.
