Keeping Lake Erie Alive: A Crash Course in Who’s Doing What About Algal Blooms and Your Water
Event Date: March 04, 2015
Wednesday, March 4th from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EST.
Free webinar by Freshwater Alliance
We’ve all seen pictures of the slimy green algal blooms in Lake Erie, and we know it’s affecting our drinking water. We know nutrient pollution is a contributing factor and is threatening many of our precious Great Lakes.
What is perhaps more confusing is what’s being done about it. Lots of work is going on at the federal, provincial and municipal level, but it can be hard to keep track of it all. If you share our curiosity, join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, March 4th from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EST. A series of presentations will provide a bird’s eye view of who is doing what on the Lake Erie algae issue.
Speakers will include Susan Humphrey from Environment Canada (representing the Great Lakes Executive Committee Nutrients Annex Subcommittee); Cale Selby from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs; Kevin Money from the Essex Region Conservation Authority, and Jill Ryan from Freshwater Future (U.S.).
