Pond Education Webinar
The POA Ponds Committee hosted a Ponds Education Webinar on Thursday, May 6. Featured speakers were Tom Woods, Extension Agent for horticulture for Brunswick County, and Amy Mead, area natural resources agent for Pender, Brunswick and New Hanover Counties. We learned the interesting natural history of St. James, the effects of development, and how we can revitalize our ponds with native buffer zone plants.

As a community, St. James strives to utilize non-invasive native plants in landscaping plans. The buffer zone of your pond is the perfect place to protect your pond edge and water.
The 2023 Pond Buffer Zone Native Plant Sale Order Period runs through May 15.
