Make a fish smile

Have you ever seen a fish smile?  You have the chance to make that happen and get rid of your Christmas tree at the same time.  The Corps of Engineers is accepting your natural trees at the Big Oaks Recreation Area in Hartwell or the Poplar Springs boat ramp in Lavonia until 2/15/17.  The trees will be bundled, anchored and put in the lake as fish attractors.  The trees serve as a natural habitat, especially for small fish.  For additional details, click here.
