Thanks to the amazing support of several funding partners, the pond at Baxter Conservation Area was restored and ready for students this spring.
Located at the Baxter Conservation Area, the Baxter ASL Pond is visited annually by over 5,000 students from kindergarten to university looking to learn about pond ecology. It is home to frogs, fish, turtles, birds and aquatic invertebrates. It is a special spot where visitors get to observe the diversity of life hiding along its shores and in its cool waters. Equipped with nets, basins and sporting good old-fashioned rubber boots, students get up close and personal with the animals that call the pond home.
Funding partners and special friends gathered to celebrate the restored pond in May. Special thanks to the funders who made the restoration project possible.
