Pond Days 

Each year SACA partners with a number of counties to offer Pond Days programming to Grade 4 and 5 students in June. Students are taught about conservation and environmental stewardship, and specifically the importance of riparian areas. 

Pond Days is made successful by the number of volunteers that participate each year in manning the various educational stations at the lake throughout the day. Students rotate through the stations, giving them the opportunity to gain hands-on experience on a variety of topics. Topics typically include: 

  • Aquatic Insects
  • Wildlife Habitat & Identification 
  • Water Quality
  • Fish 
  • Soil & Soil Organisms 
  • Plant Identification (Invasive Species, Native & Non-Native, etc.)
