Having a pond or other water nearby brings the need to have certain plans and materials in place in case of an emergency.
Mike Muhl and Steve Shupert from Ohio Task Force 1 (OH-TF1) will be at the 2018 Pond Clinic, co-hosted by the Montgomery and Preble Soil & Water Conservation Districts (SWCD), to help participants plan for and prevent water and pond emergencies. OH-TF1 is one of 28 Urban Search and Rescue teams that function within the National US&R Response System managed by FEMA.
Carter Bailey and Ed Kwietniewski from Aqua Doc will be presenting how to manage your pond to keep it in great shape. Shawn Conner, naturalist for Hueston Woods State Park, will bring along ‘wildlife ambassadors’ for an exciting chance to get up close and personal with some of the native wildlife who need ponds. Montgomery SWCD Technicians Stefan Bridenbaugh and Jeremy Huggler will present on pond construction, repairs and maintenance.
The pond clinic will be indoors at the beautiful Meadowbook at Clayton meeting rooms, rain or shine. A picnic style meal will be catered by Meadowbrook at 5:30 pm. The program will begin at 6 pm and go through 8 pm. The Pond Clinic is FREE and open to everyone.
