Toxic algae, also known as cyanobacteria or harmful algal blooms (HABs), has become the predominant threat to water quality in the Finger Lakes region. In recent years, outbreaks have struck all 11 Finger Lakes, the source of drinking water for more than one million people in upstate New York.

The Finger Lakes Land Trust (FLLT) is working to counter the threat of toxic algae (HABs) through conservation and restoration projects that impact water quality with an increasing emphasis on partnerships.

Join FLLT Executive Director Andrew Zepp for a presentation that will highlight a few of the environmental challenges our region is facing along with some of the solutions – including land conservation and efforts to address nutrient and stormwater runoff.

This event is co-sponsored by the Finger Lakes Museum. Free and open to the public.
