CURRENT NEWS EVENTS
Jeannie and Steven are hard at work on the fish rescues. They rescued four fish that were in a very small pond of about 250 gallons and are now at Mayfield. Thanks to Bamboo Bistro our sponsor for loaning us their van.It sure made it easier. Yesterday they rescued 17 large goldfish from their neighbors pond and placed them in one of the ponds at Zilker. Everyone is happy.
MAYFIELD PARK PROJECT
The Mayfield Park project is getting ready to start and several volunteers will be needed to remove the plants, fish and rocks prior to the City to fully repair and waterproof two of the ponds and then to return them back to the ponds after the repairs. Many of the plants will need to be re-potted so this is a great opportunity to learn from the experts. Please contact Jeannie, our President to volunteer and for more information. Dates and times will be sent out with the Stream and posted on our website, Facebook and Meetup.
You must be a member to take advantage of the different services that the Austin Pond Society offers. Membership is only $30.00 for Individual and Family Memberships. Use this link to go to the Form.

Austin Pond Society and Mayfield Park
The City has given the go ahead to the Mayfield Park Ponds Project and will be starting very soon. Jeannie, our President is looking for a few able bodied pond enthusiasts to help with catching the fish and lifting the existing plants, lilies and rocks out of the two ponds that are going to be renovated. The City will then in turn, repair the ponds to prevent them from leaking and upon completion, the plants etc will be returned to the ponds. This is a great opportunity to learn more about ponding on a bit larger scale but the knowledge can be applied to any sized pond
If you are interested in helping or would like more information, please Contact Jeannie Ferrier at President@austinpondsociety.org
