Oregon Lakes Association

....a voice for quiet waters.


In lieu of our Annual Lakes Conference, Oregon Lakes Association will be holding a series of three 90 minute remote conference sessions on the topics CyanoHABs: remote sensing and prediction; Conservation of Oregon lakes; and CyanoHABs, genetics, and physiology. The free remote sessions will be held as Zoom Meetings on 10/28, 11/4, and 11/10 from 3-4:30 pm. Three to four diverse and interesting presentations will be provided each session. Conference registration is not required, just join us using the Zoom links and passwords provided in the agenda.
