As you have read in the past few months, the Healthy Pond Collaborative (HPC) created by a major grant from the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation has been very busy responding to inquires from local communities interested in getting some help enhancing their ailing stormwater ponds. With this planting season for aquatic plants virtually over, it is important if you’d like help with your stormwater ponds that you contact us now to reserve some funding for our spring 2022 planting program.
Since the grant was awarded back in mid-September, we have received requests for pond help from over twenty-five different neighborhood communities and organizations. We have already visited about half of them for a review of their pond situation. To get on our project list for 2022, please contact Sandy Gilbert with START at firstname.lastname@example.org.
