Dr. Kim Schulz, Associate Professor of Environmental and Forest Biology, at SUNY ESF has been surveying Owasco Lake and other Finger Lakes for invasive species - specifically Quagga Mussels. 

Research is beginning to reveal a possible association between the increase in the occurrence of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and the Quagga Mussel’s ability to excrete phosphorus.

Join us to learn more about the results of Dr. Schulz’s research and underwater survey on how this invasive species may be impacting our lakes.  

If you are unable to attend the June 16th Zoom webinar, Dr. Schulz will be presenting similar information for Onondaga County CCE as part of New York State’s Invasive Species Week on June 10th from 10 am to 11 am with registration available at
