Join us for a morning of talks highlighting recent research on the past, present, and future ecology of Hancock’s Norway Pond. Dr. Amanda McQuaid of the University of New Hampshire will present her findings on cyanobacteria toxins in sediments that have accumulated over the historical past. Sara Steiner, program coordinator for the NHDES Volunteer Lake Assessment Program (VLAP), will share an ecological status report based on 17 years of water quality data collected at Norway Pond by longtime VLAP volunteer Dick Warner. Finally, Dr. Kate Hastings, manager of the NHDES Cyanobacteria Harmful Algal Bloom Program, will offer a glimpse of what the future might hold.

9 a.m. to noon at the Harris Center. After the presentations, all are welcome to stay for an optional workshop to discuss future research plans from 1 to 3 p.m. Workshop participants should plan to bring a bag lunch. Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information, including questions about accessibility, contact Tom Shevenell.

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