Save the date for our 49th Annual Lakes Conference
June 22, 2019, UMaine Farmington
Our 49th annual Lakes Conference will once again be held at the University of Maine at Farmington with a theme of “Jump In.” We hope participants will “jump in” to learn about ways to monitor lake health with drones, identify lake algae, effectively communicate lake conservation messages, and implement LakeSmart programs. Our key note speaker, Whitney King, will be highlighting the value of protecting water quality with a case study of East Pond. Increasingly severe algal blooms on that lake led to a $1.5 million alum treatment to restore water quality, largely funded by private residents. Hearing about the lessons learned from East Pond will be a highlight for all conference attendees.
