Wednesday, June 16th, 2021. 12:00 PM. Harmful Algal Blooms. Featuring NJDEP Harmful Algal Blooms Statewide Expert HAB Team. Sponsored by the NJ Climate Change Resource Center. Register here.
Climate change will have a major impact on both aquatic ecosystems. Among these impacts is the potential for more harmful algal blooms (HABs). HABs occur when algae (plant-like organisms) grow out of control and produce toxins that are harmful to people, fish, birds, and other organisms in the local environment. Join members of the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, Statewide HAB Expert Team, and Watershed Institute as they discuss the relationship between HABs in freshwater and climate change, as well as how municipalities and residents can work to address and manage these damaging events.
