APS Forum Has Been Shut Down

The board decided at the last board meeting to shut down the forum here on the website. There has been little activity on it in the last few years, and we would often see people post a question, only to have no responses at all. Rather than have people be disappointed about not getting an answer, we've decided to encourage people to use communication channels that have more activity and are more likely to get responses.

If you have a pond-related question, please use one of the following means to reach us:

1. Post the question on our Facebook page.

2. Ask at a monthly meeting.

3. Send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  

 
APS Volunteers are hard at work

APS volunteers went to the AISD Memorial Pond on Sunday Nov. 2 and put in 22 man hours to cleanout and restore the pond. We took out gallons of green scum.and rescued  five large gold fish and several frogs. We built a fish cave and added several new plants. We then repaired the waterfall before filling the pond with fresh water. The pond now contains five happy goldfish and frogs. Thanks to APS member Steven Monfrini for getting this together.

The following Sunday, November 9, the APS volunteers spent the morning cleaning out the stream and several ponds at Zilker Botanical Gardens.. We put in 15 man hours on this day

There are pictures on the Facebook page about these actions taken by the Austin Pond Society Volunteers..
