Improving Habitat at Lake Oroville
     
Lake Oroville’s habitat is getting better for fish thanks to the helpful hands of the California Conservation Corps members who placed 1400 Christmas trees at the lake during the last two weeks of January. The trees provide a place for fish to hide from predators. The trees placed at Bidwell Canyon Boat Launch area and the Afterbay are expected to last about 15 years before decomposing. As sponsor of the yearly project that began 20 years ago, DWR also coordinates with Chico Boy Scout Troop 2, Recology and California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
