Help build habitat structures for Monroe Lake, June 25
Start Date: 6/25/2019Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 6/25/2019End Time: 7:30 PM
Event Description:
Volunteers can improve fish habitat at Monroe Lake by building structures on June 25.

The volunteer day is part of the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife's Reservoir Aquatic Habitat Enhancement Program (RAHEP). RAHEP builds fish habitat in reservoirs where natural structure is lacking.

The work day will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the DNR’s Bloomington office, located at 5596 E. State Road 46. Volunteers will assemble 40 wooden structures from lumber. The structures will give fish a place to live and hide from predator fish.
Monroe Lake is a nearly 11,000-acre reservoir near Bloomington. It was chosen for the program due to the property’s strong partnerships with local entities. This will be the final volunteer day planned for Monroe Lake, as more than 200 structures have been built and placed in the lake already.

DNR fisheries biologists will place the structures on the lake bed in the summer and fall. Once structures are placed, the project map will be updated to show their GPS coordinates, depth and structure type. Current structure placement locations can be found at https://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/7665.htm.

Volunteers should dress for working outside, and bring snacks, water, protective eyewear, gloves and cordless drills. Volunteers are encouraged to register in advance at wildlife.IN.gov/8301.htm. Unregistered, walk-in volunteers are welcome as well. 

Learn more about RAHEP at wildlife.IN.gov/7665.htm.
