Join us at Ithaca Youth Bureau on Saturday, September 7th, at 1:00 PM to learn more about cyanobacteria, the source of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABS) in our lakes. Did you know that they’ve been around much longer than our lake itself and almost since the early days of life on Earth? Who are these curious creatures and why are we concerned about recent massive blooms of them in Cayuga Lake? We’ll take you through the basics with a couple of interactive activities including collecting a sample of lake water and looking at it under the microscope. We will also take time to explore and discuss other phytoplankton found in Cayuga’s waters, and how these microscopic creatures fit into the lake ecosystem.
Contact email@example.com or call (607) 257-6606 for details. This event is FREE. All are welcome!
