Protecting Your Piece of Paradise

DNR Publication # FH 228

Written by Dan Helsel and Scott Szymanski

Part I | Part II | Part III

An early morning mist lifting from the water's edge...

The clamor of frogs filling the springtime eve with a shrilling chorus...

A rainbow trout easing to the surface and slurping in an unsuspecting dragonfly...

Southbound ducks overhead, circling, patiently surveying before cupping their wings for a migrating respite...

Moonlight skating in the chill of winter...

A refreshing dip in the heat of summer...

all fond memories of life by your pond.
