The Missouri Department of Conservation is inviting landowners to attend a free, online workshop on pond management.

The virtual workshop is scheduled 6:30-9 p.m. March 11. Participants must pre-register at

"This workshop will offer landowners valuable information on starting a new pond or managing an existing pond for the healthiest fish population possible," MDC Fisheries Management Biologist Scott Williams said in a news release. "Well-managed private ponds provide close-to-home fishing and recreation opportunities and healthy habitats for fish and other native wildlife."

MDC pond management workshops help landowners make the most of their private lakes or ponds by teaching techniques to control aquatic plants, improve fishing, build and maintain better ponds, and manage pond water quality.

This workshop will cover a variety of topics including pond site selection, pond construction, pond stocking, fisheries management, aquatic vegetation management, pond watershed management and nuisance wildlife.

Professionals from MDC, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Soil and Water Conservation District will give presentations and answer questions.
