California State University Northridge Project
California State University Northridge (CSUN) Pond supplies a home for many ducks, geese, turtles and insects that just like us, need water to survive. This large scale was desperately in need of a make-over. CSUN had the option to fill in the existing pond on campus, but instead decided renovate it and make is more sustainable for nature and our wildlife in the surrounding communities. CSUN brought in the experts – California Waterscapes and Pro Ponds West, who specialize in the construction and renovation of natural looking ponds and water features here in Southern California.
CSUN has chosen to keep the turtles in a somewhat quarantine environment at their pond, while trying to make the feature more sustainable for all types of wildlife. In the process making the experience for visitors and students more enjoyable. The pond will act as a living, breathing, sustainable ecosystem that’s enjoyable for visitors, but more importantly keeping our ever precious water environment from being destroyed.
