Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites landowners to participate in the Natural Pond Management workshop on Saturday, May 7 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. The workshop takes place at the Watershed Learning Centre in Terra Cotta Conservation Area, located at 14452 Winston Churchill Blvd., Halton Hills.

“Ponds enhance the beauty of properties and are also important habitat for fish and wildlife,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation at CVC. “Learning how to care for ponds naturally helps improve water quality and overall watershed health.”

Participants will learn how to improve the health of their ponds from CVC’s aquatic specialists. They will see the positive effects of natural pond management practices during the outdoor portion of the workshop.

“Workshop participants will learn techniques to help with algae, create fish and wildlife habitat as well as to naturally improve the overall health of ponds and streams,” said Sherwin Watson-Leung, Program Coordinator, Aquatic Restoration.

The cost of the workshop is $15 per person. Participants will receive a copy of the Natural Pond Management handbook and also learn about funding opportunities for pond restoration projects through CVC’s Landowner Action Fund.
