Pond management workshop scheduled
A pond management workshop is being presented at 9 a.m. June 5 approximately three-fourths of a mile south of the intersection of Old Hwy 33 and Choctaw Rd.
Among the topics that will be presented are how to manage constructed pond dams to maintain integrity, how to treat dispersive soils in a pond, identifying aquatic vegetation and determining stocking rates of fish. Two different ponds will be observed, and recommendations will be made throughout the workshop.
"To get there, just drive south of Langston University on Choctaw Road," said Mike Sams, private lands senior biologist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. "Visitors should look for signs leading into a gate on the west side of Choctaw Road, and they can just pull in the gate to get to the workshop."
The workshop is being sponsored by the Wildlife Department, the Logan County Conservation District and the Natural Resources Conservation Service office.
