If you are interested in ponds and all things connected, like plants and fish, why not become a member of the Austin Pond Society.
Meeting are held eleven months of the year which excludes December, at the Zilker Botanical Gardens Meeting Room on the third Monday of the month starting at 6:30 pm. They usually last about two hours and are generally attended by around fifty or so of our current membership. We usually have a speaker talking to us on the different and various aspects of ponding and many of them are from the local Gardening and Aquatic businesses around town. They are always interesting to listen to and provide a wealth of knowledge to the laymen (us). Incidentally, many of them are our sponsors and one of their benefits is a discount at many of their stores and places of business.
We have a Hospitality person who provides us with a light meal before the meeting. Deserts are also provided by the many members and some of them are out of this world.
We also have an extensive library of books all related to ponding, for the D.I.Y person, plants, fish and everything else related to water gardening. The books are loaned free to members
We hold social meetings at some of the various restaurants around town and sometimes have members only tours set up to visit one of the local ponds, usually of one of the members. I can promise you that you will get to meet a very nice bunch of people all with the same interest.
We meet on the third Monday each month (except December) at 6:30 p.m. at the Zilker Botanical Garden Clubhouse.
