Continuing SENR’s exploration of winter habitats, we met up with Eugene Braig, Extension program director for Aquatic Ecosystems in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University to learn more about the functions of ponds, how winter weather may impact ponds and aquatic life and ways to mitigate for any disruptions.
