Registration now open for annual Lakes & Ponds Education Day

Pinellas County is pleased to announce this fun and educational event!

This free workshop is intended for all citizens interested in the health and management of our water resources and green spaces. There will be special focus on maintaining and managing stormwater ponds.

It will be an opportunity to share information, to gain useful management tips, and to learn more about the efforts of similar organizations.

The event will be held in trade show format with featured presentations. Attendees will be able to mingle among the displays from government, environmental, and private organizations. We invite you to bring a specimen or a high quality photo of a plant you would like to have identified (please bring specimen in a Ziploc bag with water from the pond).

This event is a great opportunity to learn about Best Management Practices in and around Florida lakes and ponds. At the conclusion of the event, there will be a giveaway of FREE native aquatic plants, wildflowers and trees. Please bring your grocery bags to transport your plants. We will also have other fun raffle items throughout the event!
