You’re invited!

Join GPF scientists, Island health agents, and pond community members to discuss cyanobacteria blooms and monitoring in 2022…plus plans for 2023. In 2022 coastal ponds showed more algal growth than 2021 and this followed the trend region-wide. Cyanobacteria blooms are also know as cyanoHABs, as they are one type of Harmful Algal Blooms. Learn more about blooms here.
