Should We Be Worried about the Lakes of Maine?

Updated: Mar 5


LASC is proud to host Roberta Hill for a Food for Thought program on:


Tuesday March 23 at 4:00 PM.


How are our lakes affected by climate change?

Roberta is an aquatic ecologist and environmental educator. She has been active in the field of lake protection and community outreach in Maine for over twenty years, leading community-based projects that have ranged from watershed surveys, to non-point source remediation, to invasive aquatic plant monitoring. She has also been instrumental in the creation and development of some of Maine’s most successful and long-standing lake education programs. Currently the Invasive Species Program Director for Lake Stewards of Maine, Roberta is the originator and coordinator of LSM’s Invasive Plant Patrol (IPP) program. This program is well known nationally and internationally as a model for citizen-based early detection. Roberta is also the principal author of the Maine Field Guide to Invasive Aquatic Plants and co-author of Citizens’ Guide to Invasive Aquatic Plant Management.


But, over and above the challenge of invasive species, there are many changes in watersheds affecting water quality, species of fish, the presence of algae, etc. that are caused by air and water temperatures change.


Come, listen, and learn!
