Photo of the pond at Ag Heritage ParkMembers of Ag Land & Resource Management crew constructed the 2.5 acre pond, a beautiful addition to the Park. It is now a regular resting spot for the area’s water fowl.

The development of ponds and wetlands offers a unique opportunity for developing undergraduate and graduate student research projects in many different areas including horticulture, fisheries, agronomy and soils, biosystems engineering and entomology and plant pathology. The area around the ponds is providing a natural setting for gatherings of the agricultural community for fellowship and community development.

The Alabama Catfish Producers provided two fish feeders and the AU Fisheries & Allied Aquacultures Department stocked the pond with fingerlings–sunfish, shell crackers, catfish and bass.
