While the Campus Pond may not be its picturesque self this spring, it’s for a good cause. The water level has been temporarily lowered to allow for wetland restoration work at the pond’s north end. The work will be completed by mid-June and the water level will be brought back to normal.

Wetland plants will be installed along the banks in late July and early August, and a waterfowl fence will be installed to protect them from ducks and geese. The fence will remain until late fall or early winter when the plants have grown enough to survive.
