Pond with a Purpose

The north aquarium in the gallery of the nature center is in for a big change! The sturgeon have died and we are changing the focus of the exhibit to reflect the habitat at the Reserve. The aquarium needs to be refurbished and a new filtration system installed. Realistic logs and stumps to reflect the makeup of our ponds will be fabricated. Game fish, such as bass, catfish, and others that would be found on the Reserve, will be added. The Pond with a Purpose will be an important addition to our education programming and visitor enjoyment. It helps to illustrate how clean water provides a sustainable lifestyle for the Fox River Valley.

Your donation to a Pond with a Purpose will help us teach about the importance of water and wetlands.
