Brian Barczyk Project

July 11th – July 13th, 2023

Location: Utica, MI
Attendees: All Aquascape Water Feature Builders – Novice and Experienced

Brian owns and operates The Reptarium, which is home to a wide range of exotic animals focused on reptiles. Brian has a large social media presence where he shares his adventures with his critters. He’s building an even larger facility where attendees, led by Ed Beaulieu, will install a long, meandering and interactive ecosystem pond with a dramatic waterfall that greets visitors at the entrance. A bridge will span a portion of the slow-moving stream, allowing people of all ages to interact with the water feature while taking pictures as they wait in line to go inside. Attendees of this training event will learn the proper way to strap and set large boulders, in addition to design and construction techniques for real world applications.
