The Pinellas County Natural Resources Section and the City of Largo are pleased to invite you to our annual Lakes & Ponds Education Day event.
This 3 ½ -hour free workshop is intended for volunteers and citizens interested in the health and management of our water resources, specifically community lakes and stormwater ponds. It will be an opportunity to share information, to gain useful management tips, and to learn more about the efforts of similar organizations.
The event will be held in trade show format with featured presentations. Attendees will be able to mingle among the displays from government, environmental, and private organizations. We invite you to bring in a plant specimen you would like to have identified (please bring specimen in a Ziploc bag with water from the pond).
This event is a great opportunity to find out about proper Florida landscaping techniques and of course we will have FREE native plants! Please bring your grocery bags to carry aquatic plants. We will also be giving away waders, EZ reachers, and educational materials to help you manage your ponds and landscapes.
Sponsors: We are actively recruiting sponsors for this event. If you would like to participate, please contact Anamarie Rivera at (727) 464-4605 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Participation can include donating items for the free raffles, donating funds to pay for educational materials and refreshments, and opportunities for a display table at the event to promote your organization.

Pinellas County is a watershed!
A watershed is an area of land that drains to water. A watershed carries water "shed" from the land after rainfall. Drop by drop, water is channeled into soils, creeks and streams, making its way to Tampa Bay or the Gulf of Mexico.
Every bit of land drains to water and everything we do on land has an impact on our water quality! Common items like trash, grass clippings & yard debris, pet waste, and fertilizer become pollution in our waters.
