Texas Parks and Wildlife is hosting a webinar about the harmful algae blooms in Lady Bird Lake in 2019 and 2020. After a number of dogs got sick and died after “being exposed to toxic cyanobacteria mats” in the lake, the city’s Watershed Protection Department and TPWD began to monitor the lake for the presence of toxins in the algae. Senior environmental scientist Brent Bellinger will discuss the findings of the studies and “the conditions that have given rise to the blooms in the reservoir.” Tuesday, March 9, 6:30 p.m. Register here.
