Retention Pond Refresh

  • Location
    Middleburg, Florida
  • Status

The Problem

We aim to install water plants in our neighborhood retention pond to get rid of the algae and restore oxygen to the pond as well as food sources and shelter for animals who lost a lot when construction occurred next door to the pond.

Our Plan

We are applying for a roots and shoots grant to buy plants and fencing. The fencing would isolate the plants long enough for them to become established and grow. We also will ask people in the community to donate a plant(s) and let them know what day the planting will be done so they can watch and see the difference they are making for our wildlife in the area.
