Event Details

Owning a lush and scenic country pond is a point of pride for many rural landowners, but over time ponds need a hand to stay clean and healthy.

Illinois pond owners can prevent problems like fish kills and low water volume and get a jump start on spring upkeep with this free webinar.

With more than 40 years of natural resources and water management experience between them, Extension Educators Duane FriendĀ and Jay Solomon will cover how to keep ponds healthy and beautiful. Topics include outside influences, water supply, and quality, maintenance, weed and algae management, control of trees and brush on dams, sediment build-up, and more.

Guest presenter Blake Ruebush, a Fisheries Biologist with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, will discuss how to best manage fish populations including when and how to stock fish in new or existing ponds.

Those with ponds will learn how to overcome existing problems and prevent problems and anyone looking to build a pond will learn how to avoid many common problems.

Come with questions that will be answered live.
