Upcoming sessions: 

  • Friday, October 2, Remotely Operated Vehicles with Cody Warner from Deep Trekker 
    • Cody Warner with Deep Trekker, Inc., in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, will lead viewers on a tour of how his company’s aquatic drones are used to visually inspect underwater environments, a useful tool for aquatic research, inspections by public utilities and other purposes.
  • Tuesday, October 13, Climate Change in the Champlain Basin with Curt Stager from Paul Smiths College 
    • Global climate change is not only about polar bears and far-off places: we are experiencing it here in the North Country, too. The evidence comes from a wide range of sources including weather data, ice-out contests, and nature diaries, and the changes are already being noticed by regular folks as well as experts. We’ll discuss the nature and causes of those changes as well as what they could mean for the future of the region.
  • Tuesday, November 10, Managing Lamprey in the Lake Champlain Basin with Stephen Smith from US Fish and Wildlife Service 
    • Participants will hear from Stephen Smith, a fish biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in Essex Junction, about what is being done to control sea lamprey populations in Lake Champlain.
  • Friday, December 4, Impacts of Road Salt in the Adirondacks with Brittany Christenson from ADKAction
    • Brittany Christenson will describe the work that her organization, ADKAction, has done to address pollution of waterways by road salt runoff, including developing recommendations for reducing road salt pollution and promoting alternative deicing products, techniques and best management practices to protect water resources.
