IISD Experimental Lakes Area Annual Report 2014-2015
2014-2015 was a great year for IISD Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA).
This was the world-class freshwater research institute's first year under new management, and the team was happy to get back to research as well as focus on expanding the outreach and educational opportunities at the site.
The annual report includes highlights from some members of staff and the board, as well as some stats from our first year and images of our 58 beautiful lakes and their watersheds.
