The Ag Museum has a windmill near the front door.

The public is invited to learn from two of Purdue Extension’s most knowledgeable Extension Educators on pond management and fish management. David Osborne, Extension Educator in Ripley County, and Jonathan Ferris, Extension Educator in Wayne County, will be sharing their training and experience.

Subjects to be covered include understanding the pond ecosystem, managing aquatic vegetation, pond maintenance, fish species best suited to Indiana ponds, fish stocking rates, and fish population management.
