The Westchester County Soil and Water Conservation District and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Westchester County receive dozens of calls every year from residents concerned about the condition of ponds and lakes. Worsening conditions resulting from algal blooms, invasive plants, sedimentation, stormwater pollution and warming temperatures have prompted action by the public and private sectors and not-for-profit groups.
The District and Cornell Cooperative Extension, in partnership with the Westchester County Planning Department and Native Plant Center at Westchester Community College, are sponsoring a full-day workshop featuring four experts who will discuss various aspects of pond and lake management. The workshop will be held on December 7, 2017 at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. The fee to attend is $45, which includes continental breakfast, box lunch, handouts and attendance certificate. Because space is limited, please register early. The workshop flyer, registration form and agenda are available below.
