More Sandpit Management Workshops

March 6, 2017 daryl bauer

I blogged about a sandpit management workshop last week.  I intended that would be the only blog post about that, but within a half day after posting, I discovered there were more workshops scheduled.  So, I need to get the word out about those too:

Sandpit lake management workshop scheduled in Grand Island

LINCOLN, Neb. – Persons interested in sandpit lake management are invited to a series of free workshops this spring.

The workshops are a joint effort of the Nebraska Extension, Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The workshops are intended for landowners and others interested in learning about:

— Sandpit lake functions, characteristics and challenges

— Managing waters for fisheries

— Lake management planning

— Resolving common maintenance problems

— Toxic algae management and sampling

— Invasive species

Reservations are required.  The schedule for the workshops, which will begin at 6 p.m., is as follows:

If you are a sandpit owner, live on a sandpit, or just like fishing sandpits, sign up for this workshop!  You will learn something!

Sandpits can be excellent fisheries and are very important fisheries resources in Nebraska!
