Partnering to Mitigate Harmful Algal Blooms across the Midwest and Beyond
Wednesday, July 10, 2019 from 2-3pm CT

It’s summer – and that means for a lot of communities harmful algal blooms (HABs), or blue green algae, are top of mind. Tune in to this month’s The Current webinar as we hear from the Network’s Mitigating HABs team as they discuss their soon to be released white paper cataloging Extension and state-based algal bloom programs and resources and outlining recommendations for HAB messaging and resources moving forward.  Team members will discuss how their unique partnership between each Water Resources Research Institute and Extension throughout the region is allowing them to transform the latest HAB research results into accessible information and tangible algal bloom tools people can use, and the lessons they have learned along the way.

Featured Speakers:

  • Lois Wolfson, Water Quality Senior Specialist, Department of Fisheries and Wildlife and Institute of Water Research at Michigan State University
  • Melissa Miller, Associate Director, Iowa Water Center
  • Chad Cook, Land & Water Outreach Program Manager, UW-Madison Division of Extension
