Charleston Area Healthy Pond Series

November 18th, 2021

Register for the Conference

Pond Nutrients Management

The Healthy Pond Series is a community-based discussion series for pond owners to learn and share stormwater pond management solutions. This virtual session is intended for pond owners in the Charleston Tri-County Area. Participants will learn best practices for communicating pond management strategies with their community, as well as the basic elements of social marketing techniques to motivate actions that support healthy ponds. There will also be time for discussion, questions and sharing stories about communication in your own community.

This event is free and will be useful to anyone who is an HOA board member, property manager, or responsible for pond management decision making in neighborhoods. Please feel free to invite your HOA board, property management company or anyone else who might be interested. You will receive webinar access information two days before the event. Let me know if you have any questions!

HPS is a partnership between the ACE Basin NERR/SCDNR, Clemson Cooperative Extension and the Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium.
