Glen Oak Zoo
The Prairieland Koi & Pond Society installed a pond and wet land area at
the Zoo in August of 2001. We continue to help care for the pond on a as needed basis. Volunteers weed, mulch and take general
care of the surrounding area of the pond, as well as maintenance on the pond.
The club performs various other water gardening projects. Some of these projects
include: retirement homes, helping club members with their ponds, and participating in various programs for the public. Watch
the newsletter to learn of these upcoming events. Help us help others.
The next series of pictures show some of the Executive board helping a club member install a large koi pond.
This group of guys decided to lend a helping hand and at the same time put to use some advanced pond techniques they picked
up at seminars in Pond building. Moving rock is always labor intensive, but with 4 strong men, the job is accomplished faster.
