Join discussion on water quality 
Friends of Lake Stewards of Maine water quality staff will hold its bi-weekly Water Quality Zoom meeting at 10 a.m. Thursday.
Join this online discussion to share observations about changes that you have observed in the lake or surrounding environment during your time as a volunteer lake monitor. This discussion may include both non-living (abiotic) and living (biotic) changes in the open lake, the littoral zone, riparian and shoreline areas, and the upland watershed.
The meeting will begin with an overview of what is known about ways in which lakes experience both natural and anthropogenic-influenced changes over time, after which we invite you to share your observations and raise questions for the group.
This meeting was re-scheduled from the planned Nov. 5 session.
