    April 20, 2021: Aquatic Herbicides & Permitting by Brittany Chesser

    Join us for an in-depth program as we cover the 15 aquatically approved herbicides, their common uses, modes of action, and differences between terrestrial herbicides for a better understanding when making management decisions. We will also cover frequently asked questions on aquatic herbicide use including water restrictions ( i.e. "Can I still eat my fish?", "Is this toxic to my fish"). Lastly, we will go over what type of permitting you may or may not need for aquatic vegetation management in lakes or ponds.

    Casey Jordan, Executive Director, Texas Dance Hall Preservation, Inc. 

    “Two Step Your Way Through Time and Discover Texas history in our Historic Dance Halls”
    Zoom Talk
    Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at Noon

    Texas dance halls are as diverse Texas itself, and can be found throughout the state. The story of Texas is embedded in the floors, walls, music and people found in these unique and iconic buildings. Texas once had 1000 dance halls; today only 400 remain, almost half of which were built by German immigrants. We will go over a brief history of German dance halls, and take a look at photos of some that remain.

    Please e-mail tricia.blakistone@austin.utexas.edu for a link to this talk.

    May 18, 2021: Water Quality for Fisheries Management

    We will cover what is water quality, how do you determine water quality, the link between water quality and chemistry, why you should worry about water quality for your fish. Most people are surprised to learn how critical water quality is for their fish, how many different water quality factors can impact their fish (often in unusual ways), that toxic organisms in their pond can kill their fish, livestock, or companion animals, and how minor amendments to water quality can drastically improve their fishery. We will also cover what is tested during a standard water quality test, how each parameter tested affects your fish, how to fix any issues found during the test, how to apply treatments, and how to have your water quality tested.

    Join us for an in-depth conversation on the pros and cons with having aquatic vegetation in your pond or lake.
