More information

Maine DEP Commissioner Patricia Aho will welcome us with state government’s perspective on the invaluable work of Maine’s volunteer citizen lake scientists, followed by University of Maine School of Marine Sciences Professor Emmanuel Bass, who will describe and demonstrate how state of the art cell phone technology may be used to help us learn more about lakes, and how volunteer lake monitors can be part of a pilot study. Lake watershed management specialist, Wendy Garland (MDEP) has been invited to explain the valuable role that VLMP volunteers can play in monitoring the health of their lake watersheds, including a recent example of a successful project spearheaded by volunteer monitors and members of their lake community.
