The New York State Federation of Lake Associations, Inc. (NYSFOLA) is getting ready for their 32nd Annual Conference entitled “Celebrating Citizen Science.” The conference will be held May 1-3 at White Eagle Conference Center in Hamilton. Concurrent sessions on Friday and Saturday will include a Watercraft Inspection Steward Program Workshop and topics related to volunteer monitoring, harmful algal blooms, aquatic invasive species, Lake Law for lake associations, lake management plans, climate change, dam safety, and more! This year, we are excited to have the FLI’s “own” Dr. John Halfman joining us to give a presentation entitled, “Historical Chloride Concentrations in the Finger Lakes: Salt Mines and Road De-Icing Salts.” This is the largest gathering of lake association members and lake enthusiasts from across the state each year. Won’t you join us? Registration information is on the web at http://www.nysfola.org.
