Date: 11/2/20 7:42 am From: Joel Geier <clearwater...> Subject: [obol] Fwd: Oregon Lakes Association 2020 Zoom Conference Sessions
This conference series Nov 4th & 10th could be of keen interest for many Oregon birders, considering the role that lakes play as habitat for many birds that birders enjoy. The topics include Great Basin saline lakes (such as Lake Abert and Summer Lake), harmful algae blooms in the Klamath Basin, phytoplankton communities in montane lakes (such as Lost Lake), and wildfire effects on the ecology of reservoirs (such as Detroit Lake).
Be like water & love our lakes, Joel
