(PRESS RELEASE) – Need help managing your pond? Would you like to improve it, but don’t know how? Well then attend a Pond Clinic on Monday, April 15, and have Steve Fender answer all your questions.

Steve and his sister Cheryl grew up helping their parents run Fender’s Fish Hatchery and they now manage the hatchery.

From his lifetime of experiences, he wrote the book ‘Pond Management – The Common Sense Guide’. From a small pond to a big lake, Steve has the answers to your questions. He will explain the calendar of pond life, stocking recommendations, fish species, aeration, oxygen, your pond and wildlife, and weed control – come with your questions!

The Pond Clinic is being sponsored by the Williams Soil & Water Conservation District. It will be held at the Williams SWCD office at 11246 State Route 15, Montpelier, starting at 4:30 p.m. with a hot dog roast. There is no fee to attend.
