The Land of Lincoln Water Gardening Society presents Parade of Ponds Saturday, July 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Enjoy a self-guided tour of eight Springfield-area ponds and gardens. Homeowners will be on site to answer questions about installation and maintenance of the ponds. This is the excursion for you if you’ve ever thought about adding a water feature to your property, or maintaining a water feature, if you want to learn more, or if you’d like to support the society’s community work. Proceeds from ticket sales assists with the Governor’s Mansion water feature and the Dana Thomas Home reflective pool. Tour tickets are $15 for two people. Through July 14, they may be purchased at Ace Hardware on Wabash Avenue, Wild Birds Unlimited, Schnucks on Sangamon Avenue and Greenview Nursery. Learn more about the LLWGS at
