Want to Know More About Blue Green Algae?

Mike Winslow and Angela Shambaugh on Vermont Edition.

LCC has been working hard to educate the public about blue-green algae. For years now we have offered algae monitor training sessions to instruct anyone interested in how to distinguish blue-green algae from other floating phenomena and what the health risks are of exposure to blue-green algae. During the past summer we were particularly active in expanding our outreach to major media outlets. In July Mike Winslow and DEC scientist Angela Shambaugh sat down with Jane Lindholm on VPR’s Vermont Edition. In late August, Mike visited Shelby Cashman on WCAX’s The 30. Both shows can be viewed on-line at the links provided. You can also sign up to receive LCC’s weekly emails about blue-green algae conditions during the summer.
