Virtual Science Pub: The Secret World of Squam – Squam Lakes Natural Science Center
May 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Zooplankton: Free-ranging Lake Cattle and Defenders of Water Quality
by James F. Haney, Professor, Center for Freshwater Biology & Ecotoxicology, Department of Biological Sciences, University of New Hampshire
Be transported to the miniature world of zooplankton, where experiences are altered and unexpected from a human perspective, where water turns to molasses, species live in an upside-down world, and predators “talk” with their prey using a language of chemicals.
Second Tuesday of the month through May
Do you know what a Daphnia is? Have you closely examined our native orchids? Have you paused to ponder the diversity of lichens growing on rocks and trees? Join us for this Virtual Science Pub series as we dive into the rare and largely unknown inhabitants of the Squam Watershed. Presentations will be held via Zoom.
Cost: No charge to attend but advance registration for each session is required.
Offered in partnership with Squam Lakes Association and Squam Lakes Conservation Society.
