Last summer and fall, cyanobacteria blooms made headlines throughout New England, raising concerns about water quality and about possible health impacts for humans and our pets. Join Dr. Amanda McQuaid of NH DES’s Harmful Algal and Cyanobacterial Bloom Program for an introduction to cyanobacteria in New Hampshire lakes and ponds. We’ll cover what cyanobacteria is, why it matters, how to recognize it, when to be concerned — and when not to be! Dr. McQuaid will also discuss what to do if you think you’re seeing a bloom, and what the different state-issued advisory levels mean.

5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Closed captioning will be available. To get the login details, please register here.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, the Nubanusit Lake Association, and the Norway Pond Commission.
