Enid Lake’s Annual Habitat Day is scheduled for Saturday, February 4, with activities beginning at 7 a.m. at the Enid Lake Field Office. This year Habitat Day volunteers will be working at Midway, Chickasaw Hill, and Long Branch.

Work will include dragging cedar trees with ATVs, tying and anchoring cedar trees with concrete weights and ties, and driving wooden stakes with post drivers. Volunteers are asked to bring their ATVs to assist in placing cedar trees in the proper locations. 

The staff at Enid Lake would like to remind all volunteers who will be bringing ATVs/UTVs there is a helmet policy that requires all riders to wear a DOT approved helmet. If you don’t have an ATV and still would like to participate don’t worry; there will be plenty to do including hooking and unhooking trees to and from ATVs, tying and anchoring shelters, and constructing wooden stake beds. 

After a morning of constructing fish shelters, volunteers will return to Enid Lake’s maintenance shop for lunch, a drawing for door prizes, and a chance to win a G3 14′ aluminum fishing boat, donated by Top Dog Power Sports of Greenwood and Performance Marine of Sardis.

Clean Up Day

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Enid Lake and the Volunteers for Waste Management have set the Annual Clean Up Day Event for February 25. The event will begin at 7 a.m. 

Enid Lake Personnel would like to invite all visitors who frequent Enid Lake to these two events. With this in mind, we must also remember that the public lands surrounding Enid Lake are for everyone’s enjoyment and it is the responsibility of each user to preserve, protect and enhance our natural resources.
