Book your ferry ticket and head over to Put-In-Bay, Ohio to participate in an incredible build at the Lake Erie Island Nature & Wildlife Center with Ed Beaulieu, the Pond Professor! Take part in building a custom waterfall with a bridge and deep meandering stream that leads into an Aquascape ecosystem pond that beautifies the outside of the nature center. The water feature may also include a negative edge down the hillside, depending on site conditions. Like all Aquascape events, this is a great opportunity to network and learn about building Aquascape water features!
