ALGAE BLOOM UNDERWAY?



Lots of spring rain and a warm summer are setting the stage for significant algae blooms in lakes throughout the northeast. Cayuga is no exception! During recent cruises, we've recorded the presence of dense plankton populations and the arrival of the cyanobacteria anaebaena (pictured here) and microcystis. Help keep an eye on the state of Cayuga Lake during our July 28 eco-cruise (4-6pm) and other upcoming events!
