The Nature of Our Lake - What Did We Learn From Research Projects in 2014?

Bruce Gilman and Terry Gronwall will speak on Saturday July 11 from                9 - 11:30AM at the UCC Church Honeoye    


Science is all about discovering how things work.  We design experiments, collect data, assimilate information into reasonable explanations and, of course, we come to realize how much more we need to learn.  Over the years, we have developed a sound scientific basis for understanding the ecology of Honeoye Lake but some influential factors affecting the lake continue to change.  During 2014, we restudied the invasive zebra mussel populations spurred on by resident comments that fewer mussels were being observed.  We completed an intensive study of the submerged aquatic plant communities, and compared our results to similar data collected in 2004, 1994 and 1984.  We mapped the extent of those communities and lake bottom substrate with “state of the art” technology.  Join us for this information sharing on the Nature of Our Lake.
