Pond clinic planned at Olander Park

The Lucas Soil & Water Conservation District will hold the Fall 2019 Pond Clinic on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Olander Park 6930 Sylvania Ave. This event is for current and future pond owners or developers to learn about best management practices for creating/maintaining habitat, fish stocking, weed control, and other aspects of maintenance to increase the overall quality and in turn, enjoyment of the pond.

This year’s guest speaker is Don Schooner, pond specialist and owner of Inspired by Nature, Inc. The clinic will feature an interactive discussion on holistic pond management, mainly focused on answering questions from clinic attendees.

The Pond Clinic is free of charge but seating is limited. Those interested are asked to RSVP either online or by calling the SWCD office by Sept. 13. All attendees will be entered into a raffle to win a copy of Pond Management: The Common Sense Guide, written by Steve Fender of Fender’s Fish Hatchery.
