The Fremont County Solid Waste Disposal District (District) is recycling Christmas trees to create fish habitat at Ocean Lake. The District will accept Christmas trees, at no cost, until January 29th at the Lander Landfill, Riverton Bale Facility and Dubois Landfill. Please remove all ornaments, tinsel and lights from the tree beforehand.
Volunteers are needed to help move the Christmas trees out onto Ocean Lake, and wire the trees to each other and cement blocks. When the ice melts in the spring, the trees then drop to the lake floor to provide fish habitat.
We encourage all sportsmen and those interested in enhancing the quality of aquatic life to come out and help this Saturday, January 30th starting at 9:00 am at Long Point on Ocean Lake.
For more information on volunteering contact Rene Schell, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, at 307-332-2688 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
