Caring for Your Large Pond and the Wildlife that Use it
Saturday, April 6, 8:30 am to 3:45 pm
Sauvie Island Grange, 14443 NW Charlton Road, Portland, OR
Whether your pond, or a pond on property you manage, is for irrigation or fire suppression, whether it’s neglected and weedy or meticulously landscaped, you’ll find lots of important information packed into this one-day workshop.
The workshop will be most relevant to landowners or land managers with existing sizable ponds or small lakes. (Small decorative ponds in urban gardens are a topic for another day and the focus of this workshop will be on enhancing existing ponds, not building new ones.)
- Vegetation control
- Mosquito control
- Water quality
- Creating habitat
- Attracting songbirds, turtles and other wildlife
Part of the day will be spent walking around a pond, so wear appropriate footwear.
A $30 registration fee will include coffee, snacks, and lunch. Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, April 3.
Some scholarships are available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to request a scholarship.
