Abstract

The Grand River Dam Authority’s (GRDA) annual “Rush for Brush” program is designed to rehabilitate aging lakes associated with its two hydro projects in northeastern Oklahoma. This program encourages local individuals to volunteer as partners in conservation by helping GRDA staff construct and deploy artificial structures (also known as spider blocks) to enhance fishery habitat throughout two Oklahoma lakes.
