Friends of Cortes Island Helen
Friends of Cortes Island (FOCI) invites you to join us for an evening presentation on the state of Hague and Gunflint Lakes, Tues 20 June 7pm Mansons Hall.
In 2014 the lakes suffered a significant algae bloom, smaller blooms have occurred in subsequent years – we have just experienced another one in the last few days. FOCI has been working to monitor the lakes and find out what is happening.
We will present our new comprehensive report, commissioned by FOCI and written by Rex Weyler, which reviews the research and monitoring that has taken place to date, and puts forward detailed recommendations to help protect the lakes, reduce future algal blooms, and keep the lakes healthy for people and wildlife.
You will have chance to hear what FOCI is doing for the lakes, see a demonstration of our lake monitoring, and find out what you can do to help love the lakes!
Tea, coffee and refreshments available.
