Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites rural landowners to a Natural Pond Management workshop on May 4, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Monora Park Pavilion, 500 Monora Park Drive. CVC’s aquatic specialists will provide helpful tips on enhancing private ponds and the local environment.

“Ponds provide many benefits to people and the environment,” said Mike Puddister, Director of Restoration and Stewardship for CVC. “They enhance the beauty of your property, and provide vital habitat for a variety of plants and animals.”

Workshop attendees will learn the basics of pond ecology, learn how to naturalize their pond for improved water quality and enhanced wildlife habitat, and participate in a guided walk to the Monora Park pond.

New this summer, CVC will be adding aquatic plants to its naturalization services. Our specialists will assess your pond, develop a planting plan based on your needs and plant the aquatic plants for you during the months of July and August.

The cost of the workshop is $15 per person, which includes a copy of the Natural Pond Management Handbook, refreshments and an opportunity to purchase aquatic plants.

Register by May 1 at www.creditvalleyca.ca/events or by calling 1-800-668-5557 ext. 436. Workshop participants are asked to dress for the weather.
