Whatcom County Health and Community Services (WCHCS) invites the public to attend the Wiser Lake Harmful Algae Bloom Informational Session, which will take place on September 21 at Ten Mile Grange, located at 6950 Hannegan Rd, Lynden, WA.
The event will run from 6:00-7:30 PM and will provide attendees with valuable information about the work WCHCS is doing to address chronic harmful algae blooms (HABs) on Wiser Lake.
For over a decade, HABs have been a persistent problem on Wiser Lake. In 2022, WCHCS received grant funding to study the lake and learn more about the main causes of HABs. This info session will be an opportunity for interested parties to learn about HAB basics, the WCHCS project, and ask questions of our staff.
"We are excited to share our work on the issue of harmful algae on Wiser Lake," said Anna Mostovetsky, Environmental Health Specialist for WCHCS. "This info session is a great opportunity for the public to learn more about the basic biology of algae blooms, and the work we are doing to address HABs."
