Join us to learn about how you can get involved in a University of Louisville citizen science project.
What is that green stuff in the river? Learn how to identify potentially harmful algal blooms and differentiate them from “safe” algae.
You can contribute to a scientific pursuit to understand the cause and preferred habitats of the harmful species.
This session is open to anyone who wants to learn and those who wish to sign up as a citizen science HAB volunteer.
Presented by Dr. Tamara Sluss from UofL's Department of Urban & Public Affairs and Director of the Masters in Sustainability. Her research focuses on: Large rivers, streams, invertebrates, nutrient export, harmful algal blooms, sustainability of aquatic resources, ethnobotany, and renewable energy and land use.
This event is free and open to the public as part of Afloat: An Ohio River Way of Life.
