Join us for a morning of talks highlighting recent research on the ecology of Norway Pond in Hancock. Topics will include: what our 2020 cyanobacteria monitoring program discovered about microscopic pond life; The Lakes Observations By Citizen Scientists and Satellites (LOCSS) project, which is tracking how the volume of water in Norway Pond and other New England lakes is changing over time; and what diatoms and pollen in pond sediments have revealed about the pond’s last 3,000 years.

This event has been postponed to Summer or Fall 2021. Exact date TBD. Stay tuned!

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Norway Pond Commission.
