A symposium on water quality will be held at Northwestern Michigan College’s (NMC) Hagerty Center on February 17.

The Great Lakes Water Studies Institute and Freshwater Solutions are hosting the free event and will include local lake associations, including GLA, who will be represented by Rob Karner. Three other scientists will also be bringing their expertise to the symposium. Glen Lake will be one of the lakes featured in the discussion sharing results on Swimmer’s Itch and enteric bacteria studies.

Due to the great interest in this symposium, a larger venue is offering increased seating capacity but is still limited–plan to register right away. Registration is required by February 9 to reimink@hope.edu.
