Why is My Lake the Same Color as My Lawn?  Understanding Freshwater Harmful Algal Blooms and their Impacts on Environment & Society

April 15, 2 p.m. | VIRTUAL

Join Dr. Tim Davis, Professor of Biological Sciences for a virtual presentation.  Cyanobacterial (blue-green algae) harmful algal blooms (CHABS) occur in freshwaters around the globe, a visual symptom of an unhealthy lake and can often produce toxins that can sicken or kill humans, pets, cattle and other animals when consumed.

We have seen firsthand the devastating impacts of CHABs on society during the 2014 Toledo water crisis.  Learn more about the history of CHABs in Lake Erie, their impacts, and some hope for the future.
