Improved Facilities for Wildlife Watchers

Posted Wednesday May 31, 2017 by wf_admin

The area around Kentucky’s Carr Creek Lake received improvements that are making the location a favored destination for wildlife watchers, thanks to support from Wildlife Forever. The improvements included viewing decks, interpretive signs, a viewing blind, and a trail. The project also involved raising the height of a water outlet structure and installing regulator gates. This has enabled managers to control Carr Creek Lake’s water level and to attract more wildlife to the area. In addition, food plots, shrubs, and trees were planted and numerous nesting structures were installed. Visitors can encounter numerous wildlife species, including wading birds, fur-bearers, songbirds, amphibians, shorebirds and waterfowl.
