Upcoming EPA Webinar on the Role of Citizen Scientists in HAB Monitoring and Response

On May 29th, EPA will host a webinar on “The Role of Citizen Scientists in Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Monitoring and Response.”  This is the first webinar in a new summer series about HABs.  During this webinar, Steve Morton from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Scott Kishbaugh and Karen Stainbrook from New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation will discuss their involvement with volunteer monitoring initiatives, and how the American public can get involved in a project to monitor for potentially toxic algal species and collect meaningful data from their local water bodies for use in decision-making by a local, state, or Federal agency.  To register for this webinar, visit:  http://www2.epa.gov/nutrientpollution/webinars-about-harmful-algal-blooms.
