Enid Lake’s Annual Habitat Day is scheduled Saturday, February 3, with activities beginning at 7 a.m. at the Enid Lake Field Office. This year Habitat Day volunteers will be working at Rowsey, Bynum and Robinson Crossing areas on Enid Lake.


Work will include dragging cedar trees with ATVs/UTVs, tying and anchoring cedar trees with concrete weights and ties, and driving wooden stakes with post drivers. 


Volunteers are asked to bring their ATVs/UTVs to assist in placing cedar trees in the proper locations. The Enid Lake staff would like to remind all volunteers who will be bringing ATVs/UTVs there is a “Helmet Policy” that requires all operators/passengers 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/UTVs, 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 and drawing for door prizes. All participants will be entered in a drawing to win the pictured 14 foot Alweld fishing boat donated by Performance Marine LLC in Sardis, MS and Kirk Brothers Power Sports in Greenwood, MS.
