Since the 2014 water crisis in Toledo, a lot has been said about the Lake Erie algae bloom issue, and the local agriculture community, in general, has been taking the blame for being responsible for the generation of nonpoint source pollution – the interaction of land use activities and the hydrological cycle.

To help the local community and farmers in the western Lake Erie basin have a better understanding of why dissolved phosphorus is such a problem for Lake Erie and what you can do to minimize it, Michigan State University Extension, Ohio State University Extension and Purdue Extension are partnering to bring to southeast Michigan the State of the Lake: A Tri-State Water Quality Discussion on February 26th, 2019, from 5-8 p.m. at the Hillsdale County MSU Extension office, 20 Care Dr # B, Hillsdale, MI 49242.

Ohio Category 15 (Fert Recert), Indiana PARP, CCHA and three CCA credits will be offered for this program. Registration fee is $20 and includes dinner and resources. Register here before February 22nd!
