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.)
