Save Our Lakes

Recently at Santee Lakes we have noticed an increase in the amount of discarded fishing line scattered throughout the park. The picture above is what was collected over a span of two hours across four out of the seven lakes that many species call home. We can all do our part to be sure that the wildlife we enjoy around our lakes do not have to suffer from our carelessness. Fishing line is such a danger to wildlife, we should never discard it on the ground. If you see any left by others, please pick it up.
