Welcome to the Austin Pond Society’s New Website
Welcome to our new website. After more than 9 years with the old model, we thought it was time to put on a whole new look. The old site served us well but in computer technology, 9 years is a lifetime and the Austin Pond Society likes to move with the times (at least, starting from now).
We have added a more modern look to the site along with your usual favorites of well-written blogs, lots of pictures and videos and of course, all of the latest information.
If you would like to see something added that we have missed, you can contact me. If you would like to see a write up with pictures of your own little oasis, again contact me and I will be more than happy to come and visit with you.
Lots to look forward to…
Francis Allcorn, Webmaster.
Don’t forget the next meeting on May 17 at the Zilker Botanical Gardens Clubhouse starting at 6:30 pm. This meeting has been designated as Sponsor Night when hopefully, all of our wonderful sponsors will have a booth where they can show off their wares for the attending members to purchase. This is always a fun night and we hope to see you there.
The next major upcoming event will be the Pond Tour the weekend of June 6-7 with Saturday designated for the North side and Sunday the South. You can read more about the Tour at this link. Contact Jeannie Ferrier if you want to volunteer for the tour. This is the Austin Pond Society’s major event and money raiser. This year, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Austin Police Operation Blue Santa, a non-profit outreach program run by the Austin Police Department, the Austin Fire Department, Austin Energy, Austin Water Utilities, and the Texas National Guard. For more information, follow this link.
Some other pages that you will find interesting include the ones listed below. You can click on them to be taken to their site.
Below are our sponsors, many of whom give a discount if you show your Austin Pond Society Membership Card.
