Lucas SWCD announces pond clinic

The Lucas Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce the Fall 2022 Pond Clinic will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. inside the Rotary Pavilion at Middlegrounds Metropark in Toledo.

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 of Inspired by Nature, Inc. in Weston, Ohio. Schooner will share all-natural pond management strategies and suggestions for those interested in using less chemicals, or none at all, to maintain their pond’s quality and habitat. He will also save time to answer questions.

The Pond Clinic is free of charge but pre-registration is appreciated by visiting or calling our office at (419) 893-1966.
