Hodson Science and Technology Building, Hood College


Do you want to gain experience identifying various cyanobacteria species found in our waterways? Join us at Hood College in the Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies for a workshop led by Led by Jeff Johansen of John Carroll University. We will utilize the center’s state-of-the-art microscopy to examine and learn how to identify different species of cyanobacteria.

This is a re-scheduled workshop from March 15, 2017, when a massive snowstorm forced cancellation.   Registrants from the March 2017 workshop should re-register for the September workshop with the following constraint:

Space is limited
Please limit registration to only 1 representative from any given organization. If space is available, multiple staff members may register after 8/25/17.

Online registration is now closed!

Registration and attendance is strongly encouraged for all regional staffs from PA, VA, WV, and MD who routinely monitor WQ, algae/cyanobacteria, macroinvertebrates, or fish.

Additionally, regardless of attendance, benthic cyanobacteria samples from the field should be collected, preserved with formaldehyde, and either brought or sent (triple bagged) to C. Hudson, CCWS, Hood College, 401 Rosemont Avenue, Frederick, MD 21701.  Final IDs for samples will be disseminated to the sender. A collection of preserved samples will assist all others with familiarizing themselves with the flora of our area.
