Something Old, Something New: Help us launch IISD-ELA’s 55th research season
Even our approach to exploring threats to freshwater lakes by researching on and manipulating them directly over the long term was—and still is—unique in the world.
As we at IISD Experimental Lakes Area hit our 55th year, we’re not letting up on innovating any time soon, from tracking the health of our lakes from the comfort of our desks to scraping mucus—yes, mucus—off a fish to learn more about its health.
(And while those new approaches to science are critical, there are some more traditional ways of researching our fresh water—like donning a pair of waders—that we can’t see abandoning any time soon.)
On Thursday, June 29, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), join us for an hour-long virtual launch of our new research season, where we will celebrate our traditional and innovative approaches to what we do, as well as explain what we are setting out to discover this summer.
SPOILER ALERT: This includes 33 billion particles of plastics and some used car tires …
