Over the last few years, AVAS has been working to prevent bird entanglement and death due to improperly discarded fishing line by providing bird-safe fishing line recycling bins throughout our service area.
Bins have been installed at:
Lake Pueblo State Park
Pueblo Nature & Wildlife Discovery Center
Pueblo City Park & the Arkansas River Trail
Runyon Lake in Pueblo
Lathrop State Park in Walsenburg
Trinidad Lake State Park
John Martin State Park near Las Animas
Brush Hollow Reservoir in Penrose
Smith Reservoir in the San Luis Valley
As funds allow, more bins will be installed. If you'd like to contribute to this effort, you can donate on our website socobirds.org or by snail mail: AVAS PO Box 522 Pueblo, CO 81002.
You can also help by encouraging anglers to discard their fishing line properly.
