Is it Getting Hot in Here?

Drought, pests and impacts on our drinking water: these are some of the possible consequences of global warming on our watersheds according to Scott Kishbaugh, Chief, DOW Lake Monitoring and Assessment Section at DEC. He will present his data and explore these and other implications in his talk on Monday, April 18th at 7pm at Tully HS. Register here for your free tickets to this event.

“19 out of the 20 hottest years on record have occurred since 1980,” he noted. “More importantly, thanks to our C-SLAP program and the great work by our local lake volunteers, we have data showing the impact on New York State lakes and we can already see changes occurring.”
