Once Christmas is over and the family Christmas tree is ready to be retired, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is asking for everyone to drop off their trees to help the Lake Providence fisheries instead of tossing them to the trash.
The department is working with the Lake Providence Watershed Council and the East Carroll Bass Club to collect the retired Christmas trees. The trees will be used in a fishery enhancement project on Lake Providence.
Donated Christmas trees will be placed in various locations throughout the lake to give the popular game fish some much needed cover.
If you would like to bring some Christmas merriment and cover to the bass, crappie and bream in Lake Providence then drop your tree off at the designated area on the Byerly Airport boat ramp on Lake Providence anytime from Dec. 26 to Jan 15.
