Introduced Meeting Hosts: Arturo & Linda Vega

Linda is a Certified Desert Landscaper. She had information from the Arizona Cooperative Association to hand out. It included plant, bird and field trip information. When the Vega's bought their first home in Arizona it already had a pond in it. They learned it was work but enjoyed it. They have a temporary pond built in their new home. It is a small pond with barrel filtration. They hope to add a bottom drain and waterfall later.
