The Clarion and Venango Conservation Districts will be hosting a free Twilight Pond Walk with the Penn State Extension. The workshop will be held at YMCA's Camp Coffman. We will gather at the Fisherman's Cabin Pond located behind the dining hall at Camp Coffman. The program is designed for owners or managers who maintain ponds and lakes.
Penn State's Pond Educator, Bryan Swistock, will discuss life cycles both in and around the pond, starting with an overview of pond basics. His emphasis will be on plant identification, management, and algal control. He will also cover topics of pond structure, fish and wildlife issues, managing plants and algae, and an introduction to harmful algal blooms. Samples of aquatic plants may be brought to the workshop for identification.
The workshop will be outside, so please dress for the weather. Participants may bring a lawn chair if they will need a place to sit during the two hour session.
