Caring for Your Large Pond

April 6 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm


Saturday, April 6, 8:30 am – 3:45 pm
Sauvie Island Grange, 14443 Charlton Rd, Portland, OR

Whether your pond or a pond on property you manage is for irrigation or fire suppression, whether it’s neglected and weedy or a meticulously landscaped amenity to your property, you’ll find lots of important information packed into this one-day workshop.

The workshop will be most relevant to landowners/land managers with existing sizable ponds or small lakes. (Small decorative ponds in urban gardens are a topic for another day and the focus of this workshop will be on enhancing existing ponds, not building new ones.)

Topics will include:

  • Vegetation control
  • Mosquito control
  • Sedimentation
  • Water quality
  • Creating habitat
  • Attracting songbirds, turtles and other wildlife


A $30 registration fee will include coffee, snacks and lunch.
Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, April 3 at wmswcd.org/event/caring-for-your-large-pond/

Some scholarships are available.
