We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all Austin Pond Society Members and others that are Pond Lovers and Enthusiasts, to 2015. May the year bring good things and joy and prosperity to you all.
The Pond Society meets every third Monday of the month at the Zilker Botanical Gardens Meeting Room from 6:30 pm through 8:30 pm. Follow this link for directions and a map
We have a busy schedule planned for the first six months. See below.
Our meetings usually fall into one of two categories - educational and social. Educational meeting feature a speaker presenting on a topic of interest to water gardeners. At social meetings, we discuss ponding issues, either as one large group or in several smaller ones. In either sort of meeting, you will learn a lot, and get to share ideas with other pond enthusiasts! You don’t have to be a member to attend, so drop on by and say hello!
January 19 - Wizzie Brown, Entomologist, Extension Program Specialist - to speak on “Good and Bad Bugs in our Ponds “

March 16 - Jason Avent from Brite Ideas
April 20 - Plant Swap. Bring your surplus plants and other pond related items even fish and exchange them for something different. Even if you have nothing to exchange, you still get to pick items that are on show.
May 18 - Sponsor Night - Our wonderful sponsors will have a table to exhibit their wares and will give a brief talk on what they have. Come and support them as without them, we would not be able to do the things we do.
