The second installation of our Spring Water Webinar Series! “Water” we talking about? This five part webinar series focuses on aquatic invasive species and BC’s waterways.
In this presentation, Living Lakes Canada’s National Lake Blitz Program Coordinator shows you how you can get involved in this new and exciting entry-level citizen science program taking place in communities across Canada. The goal of the National Lake Blitz is to encourage widespread water monitoring of lakes, by using simple tools that help participants easily understand the impacts of climate change on freshwater lakes. To monitor a lake, participants don’t need a technical background or any formal training. All that’s needed to be a Lake Blitz volunteer is a thermometer, a camera and a lake you care about.
Living Lakes Canada is looking for volunteers to sign up and help monitor as many lakes as possible this year. Given last year’s heat domes, fires and floods, monitoring our precious freshwater sources is more urgent than ever. This presentation will show why simple monitoring is important for understanding the health of freshwater lakes and how easy it is for you to get involved.
