We have partnered with SRPEDD and SAVE THE BAY to sponsor a series of workshops for our members and the residents who live around Long Pond to support the water quality in Long Pond.
The subject is "Pond Friendly Living Lawn Maintenance". The workshop will present healthy lawn and yard tips.
Did you know that if you leave grass clippings on your lawn instead of bagging them, they break down to provide free fertilizer that can provide up to 1/3 of your lawn's nutrient needs?

Hosted by Martha and John Worley. Saturday, May 20 at 10am, 80 Lakeside Ave, Lakeville.

University of Rhode Island Watershed Watch Program
Helping to ensure the water quality of Long Pond is clean and safe for all is a major part of our mission here at Long Pond Association. We have partnered with URI (the University of Rhode Island) to help educate the public about water quality issues.
The monitoring of the Long Pond water is a major part of this fantastic program. We are looking for volunteers to help collect weekly samples for submission to the URI Watershed Watch Program. There will be workshops on exactly how samples should be collected.

Which means summer will be hear before you know it.
We are ramping up for another season of weed pulling.
We are looking for a waterfront property that has a working 'buffer zone' for an educational workshop in the summer. Our goals will be to show a working buffer zone and what improvements can be made in other areas that do not have any. We will be working with SRPEDD, Save the Bay, and other experts. We are trying to improve water quality, and look for opportunities for improvement. We can advise on easy maintenance tricks, and plantings that can help. We are also going to be organizing a couple other educational workshops throughout the summer on what owners can do to help promote the health of Long Pond. More information to come.
Julie St. Don, Christopher Osborn, Maria Martin and Bren Ladino were joined by Rick & Nancy Ferreira to help raise awareness at the 1st Lakeville Days sponsored by the Lions at Ted Williams Camp on Sunday, March 26, 2023.
