LDSS to Host Scientific Summit
-Algae blooms to be the topic of conversation -
 
Leamington District Secondary School’s EcoTeam has dipped its toes into the environmental waters, hosting a summit addressing the harmful algae blooms in Lake Erie.
 
On Wednesday May 20, the LDSS students will bring together a very diverse group of speakers in a co-operative working session, exploring the problems created by the blooms, the impact on our region and innovative solutions and government initiatives to battle this colourful and damaging phenomenon.
 
Among the anticipated speakers will be Raj Bejankiwar, International Joint Commission scientist, Essex MP Jeff Watson, and Rick Masse, Mayor of Pelee Island.
 
The Algae Bloom Summit will be held at the Leamington Marina Pavilion from 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at a cost of $10 per person which includes lunch.
 
As space is limited, registrants are asked to RSVP by May 15 to lisa.jeffery@publicboard.ca. Organizers ask that when reserving spot at the summit, indicate your affiliation (citizen, student, municipal employee, etc…).
