Breakout Session 2A: Pond Weed Control with Jones Fish Hatchery. Learn to ID and manage plants in your pond from those who deal with it every day.

Please come early for our pond walk with experts, if you desire. Walk will be from 4 pm-5 pm and is weather dependent. Please meet at the Rowe Woods Visitor Center lobby for our pond walk. On our walk, we will discuss what we find, including plant life, pond problems and maybe look at some macro invertebrates. This will be an easy hike, but may include uneven terrain.
