Pond program Tuesday at nature center
Chad Dolan, fisheries biologist with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, will answer questions about pond management during a program at the Jefferson County Conservation Nature Center at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
No fee or registration is required.
The questions Dolan plans to tackle include: Is that algae on my pond or duck weed? Is it harmful to the pond? What’s the difference between green algae and blue-green algae? Should I get grass carp to control the weeds? Do I need to control the weeds or can I leave it as is? And should I worry about snapping turtles and muskrat if I want a good fish population?
