Want to know how to create a pond on your property or how to maintain a pond that already exists?

On October 4, from 5 pm to 7:30 pm at Emswiler Farms Conference Center (13167 Morse Road SW, Pataskala) there will be a free pond workshop featuring demonstrations and a light dinner.

According to the event website, the workshop is bringing the best resources regarding ponds together in one place. Experts will present on such topics as building and maintaining healthy ponds, fish stocking, and wildlife management.

Weather permitting, the West Licking Fire Department will demonstrate a dry hydrant and Fairfield Soil & Water will show how a Hydrone boat is used to inspect commercial retention ponds.

The workshop is provided by Licking and Fairfield Soil & Water Conservation Districts and the Granville Milling Co. There is no charge for this event, but the conservation districts do ask for each person to register for planning purposes.

The kids’ mom, Tessa, said, “My son is ALWAYS at this pond. He’s been fishing there since he was old enough to hold a pole.”
