GRDA to host Rush for Brush Workshop in April

Mar 01, 2021

The Grand River Dam Authority Ecosystems and Watershed Management Department is announcing that its next Rush for Brush workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 17, at Wolf Creek Park in Grove, beginning at 9AM.

Due to limited materials available for this workshop, organizers anticipate 60 people will be able to attend. Registration is now open. To register, email This will be the only 2021 workshop.

Since it first began in 2007, GRDA’s Rush for Brush program has grown in popularity and participation each year. Thousands of artificial fish habitats have been placed in Grand and Hudson lakes due to the efforts of program volunteers. The habitats protect fry and fingerlings and will stay in place longer than a natural brush pile, because they are weighted with concrete blocks or bricks.

The program’s past successes led to it being named the 2018 recipient of the National Hydropower Association (NHA) “Outstanding Stewards of America’s Waters” award and the 2017 recipient of the “State Government Program” award from Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB).
