The workshop is Feb. 15 at 10 a.m. at the Extension Office on Old Concord Road.

Dr. Rob Richardson, Extension weed specialist from N.C. State University, will be presenting information on aquatic weed control in farm ponds and lakes.

Aquatic weeds are an increasing problem for those with ponds and lakes.

Proper control methods are essential to protect fish, wildlife and the environment.

There is a $5 per person fee for the class for material costs and refreshments.
