Protecting and Promoting the Finger LakesCampus Calendar
Tuesday, February 6, 2018
3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Location: 110 Moon Library
Event Description: Presented by Lisa Cleckner Director, Finger Lakes Institute.
Water resources and natural capital such as landscapes and agriculture are the heart of the Finger Lakes region. The FLI serves an important role in protecting and promoting these natural assets. By connecting activities at the FLI and in HWS academic departments to regional, state, and federal needs, the FLI provides (i) relevant, actionable scientific information for the region; (ii) research and professional development opportunities for students, faculty, and staff; and (iii) a place for community and student education about environmental issues including water, food, energy, and waste. This presentation will focus on the history of the FLI and current research, demonstration, and outreach projects on harmful algal blooms, invasive species, and mercury in the Finger Lakes. The importance of watershed groups and municipal organizations will also be discussed.
