Learn to manage your pond

As warmer weather moves in, it’s now time to start thinking about our ponds that we have neglected for the last several months. Whether you’re a fisherman who loves baking in the hot summer sun casting out line after line, or you have grandkids that love going swimming in your pond. Of course you could be a livestock owner that utilizes your ponds as a water source when we inevitably dry up this summer. Whatever the reason might be, we need to make sure that we manage our ponds for whatever activities we might enjoy.

The Frontier Extension District will be hosting a public meeting on farm pond management. The meeting will be 7 p.m. May 9, 2019, at the Anderson County Community Building, North Lake Road, Garnett, Kan.

The guest speaker will be Charlie Lee, K-State wildlife management specialist. Lee will discuss pond management, aquatic weed identification, herbicides and their application timing, and how to manage your pond for trophy fish. This meeting will be packed full of information. But don’t just come to listen, bring your questions with you, too.

If this sounds interesting to you, you are invited to learn how to manage your farm ponds. For more information, contact Ryan Schaub, Frontier Extension District, at 785-448-6826 or reschaub@ksu.edu.
