Mill Creek to restore community ponds


The Mill Creek Homeowners Association Board of Directors needs volunteers to assist the community in its Mill Creek Pond Restoration Project at 8 a.m., this Saturday, at ponds 15 and 16 near 602 137th St. NE.

The restoration project was made possible through a $3,000 community education grant from the Manasota Basin Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The East County Observer first brought you this story in its Jan. 29 edition.

Volunteers will be able to participate in a pond walk to learn more about daily interactions with the ponds and also how to maintain healthy ponds.

Refreshments will be available. School-age children must be accompanied by a parent. Closed toed shoes required. Bring a long narrow spade or trowel for planting.
