MAYFIELD PARK PROJECT
Our sponsor, Water Garden Gems, replaced the pump to a larger one for our giant bog. We added a nice big log for the turtles to sun on and added bluing to help with the algae growth. We have also added about 15 large Koi. Now we can sit back and watch the lilies and lotus bloom. Thanks Steven Monfrini and all of the volunteers that have helped at Mayfield. Our July meeting will be held at Mayfield..
Update on Mayfield Pond: Ruben and Steven finished working on the bog and its up and running. The plants are growing and all the fish are happy. It was great to have 18 volunteers at our last Mayfield cleanup, thanks to all.

Austin Pond Society and Mayfield Park
The City has given the go ahead to the Mayfield Park Ponds Project and work has already started. 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
