Join us for our first spring pond clinic since 2019 at the Cincinnati Nature Center on Tuesday April 4th from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. This clinic will give you additional guidance on owning and maintaining ponds. We will also hold a pond walk with experts, weather dependent, 4 pm-5 pm. Discussion on the walk will be based on group questions and interests. This will be an easy hike, but may include uneven terrain.
There is no cost, but registration is required to gain free admission to the Cincinnati Nature Center. To register, visit Cincinnati Nature Center’s registration page, clermontswcd.org. Registrations must be made no later than April 4 at noon.
Guest Speaker: Randy Morgan, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife, will deliver the opening presentation regarding muskrat issues in ponds.
