About The Event
Have you ever wondered what the cotton candy like clouds of algae near your shoreline are? The catch-all term for this type of algae is “metaphyton” and it can include all sorts of algae and cyanobacteria species. A lot about metaphyton is still poorly understood, but in this talk, Scott Williams, Executive Director, of the Lake Stewards of Maine will bring us up to date on knowledge of metaphyton, what causes it, and what we can do about it.
