To All Austin Pond Society Members.
The City of Austin has no immediate plans to open up the Zilker Botanical Gardens until possibly September at the earliest and of course,depending on the latest news on the virus, possibly later. Consequently, any future Austin Pond Society meetings have also been cancelled until further notice. This is a sad turn of events, not just for our Members but for all other organizations that are affected by this. We are discussing the possibilities of holding individual driveway Plant Swaps for those Members that do have plants to give away and will keep you informed of future developments.
Uppermost in our minds is the safety of our Members and we don’t want to put anyone at risk by meeting.
