Free Pond Clinic
April 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$0.00
The Ross Soil and Water Conservation District announces a free “pond clinic.” The clinic is held in conjuction with the district’s annual fish sale for stocking ponds. We’re bringing in pond expert Steve Fender, gaining a reputation in Southern Ohio as a leading expert in pond management. Fender has authored the book “Pond Management, the Common Sense Guide.” The free pond clinic will cover topics including algae blooms, aeration, weed management and fish stocking. Fender will cover the basics of pond management but most of the topics Steve will talk about are driven by questions people have about their own ponds. The Soil and Water Conservation District sponsors the pond clinic and fish stocking sale because ponds can play a role in conservation. Ponds provide habitat for all kinds of aquatic wildlife and ponds are important for preventing soil erosion and improving water quality.
