In response to the many management challenges and questions related to ponds belonging to local landowners, the Lawrence County Extension Service will host a Pond Field Day at 2 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 10, at Lake Mary Crawford Pavilion. Attendees may bring pond water samples for testing or any pond weeds they have questions about. The best effort will be made to identify pond weeds and give best management recommendations for control. Bring a lawn chair in case the event moves closer to the lake for discussions. Dr. Wes Neal, extension research professor in Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture will be on hand to do a lakeside chat discussion on ponds and general pond management issues. He will address topics such as weed control, fertilization, and stocking. RSVP by calling the Lawrence County Extension Service at 601-587-2271.
