Christmas for the Fishes

What to do when Christmas is over! 
The Friends of Claytor Lake, along with Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Appalachian Power, and The Claytor Lake State Park recycle used Christmas trees every year to create great fish habitat in Claytor Lake.
You can take your tree to the State Park Public Boat Launch for recycling. This years event is on January 17th, 2019. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering for the event or if you need any assistance with your discarded trees.
