Speaker: Gina LaLiberte

Harmful cyanobacterial blooms (blue-green algae) are an emerging worldwide public health concern. Blooms are driven by nutrient pollution and the higher temperatures, longer growing seasons, and intensifying rainfall events that we are experiencing in Wisconsin as a result of climate change. Discover how you can protect your family and pets by learning how to recognize cyanobacteria and identify potentially harmful levels, how to minimize exposure and health effects of their toxins, and how we can all work together to reduce bloom occurrence.
