Mansfield, Ohio – Ponds add a lot of value to a property and can be used for activities such as ice skating, fishing, swimming, and provide important wildlife habitat. Whether you have had a pond for years, have a new pond or are considering putting in a pond, knowing how to properly design and manage it, and even determining if it’s the right choice for you may be challenging. You may need help with nuisance vegetation such as algae, fish stocking, aeration, and soil types for design. Regardless of where you are in your pond journey, have your questions answered at the free Pond Clinic on March 1 at 5:30 p.m. at The Longview Center located at 1495 W. Longview Avenue in Mansfield. The clinic is open to the public and Steve Fender of Fender’s Fish Hatchery will be the guest speaker. Steve and staff from Richland, Morrow and Ashland Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) will answer questions you have about ponds. Light refreshments and children’s activities will be available.
If you need to stock your pond, order fish at the clinic from Richland SWCD; payment is due at the time the order is placed. Fish pick up is Friday, April 22 at 10:00 a.m. at the Richland County Fairgrounds.
