Fishing season can be a hazardous time for waterfowl at Evergreen Lake.
Mallards, cormorants and other birds have become entangled in discarded fishing line and hooks, causing them injury or death, said Vanessa Hayes, director of the Evergreen Nature Center.
Hayes has instituted a plan to help keep waterfowl and birds safe by having six containers installed around the lake where anglers can discard their lines and hooks, instead of leaving them in places that might harm birds.
