Did you know the so-called “harmful algal blooms” (HABs) we see on Cayuga Lake are not actually made up of algae? Bloom events have received tons of media attention in the past few years, but there is still much left unknown about how and why they occur and what risks are associated with them.
Join Grace Haynes, Community Science Institute’s Outreach and Programs Coordinator, for a review of what the scientific literature tells us so far about the phenomenon of HABs and where research is still needed. CSI’s Cayuga Lake Harmful Algal Bloom Monitoring Program aims to fill in some of these gaps in understanding using community engagement through volunteer monitoring.
This is a free educational presentation hosted by Friends of Salt Point that is open to the public. We will be at Lansing Town Hall, 29 Auburn Road, Lansing, on Wednesday, January 25 at 7:00PM. We hope to see you there!
(Wednesday) 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
