MILFORD, Pa. — Ponds and lakes are a common feature of the landscape in the Endless Mountains providing a source of enjoyment for many residents. Although they occur naturally in this area, many ponds and lakes have been constructed for a variety of purposes. Regardless of its origin or intended use, management of a pond or lake may present the individual landowner or community organization with many complex and difficult management decisions.
To assist private pond owners and members of lake-based community organizations with making informed and sound management decisions this workshop will be held at Camp Brule in Forksville from 5 to 8 p.m. on May 11.
This workshop will provide participants with an overview of lake and pond ecology and aquatic plants as well as site visit to a lake at Camp Brule. The cost of the workshop is $20.00 per person and includes a light dinner and informational materials.
