Several members of the Bartlett Parks Department staff brought fish cribs built by a local Eagle Scout out onto the ice covered surface of Beaver Pond on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

The fish cribs are utilized to create habitats and mimic natural logs and branches where newly hatched baby fish or "fry" can hide while they mature.

So, if you see wooden pallets, old Christmas trees and large bricks all strapped together sitting out on the ice at Beaver Pond, please do not walk on the ice to investigate. Rest assured, that come the first thaw these structures will slowly make their way to the bottom of the pond and aid in the circle of life.
