Let's Talk Lake Huron fall webinar: Chemical contaminants
Join us for a one-hour webinar as we talk about chemical contamination in Lake Huron. When chemical contaminants enter our waterways, they can build up (bioaccumulate) over time in the food web and remain in the Great lakes for long periods of time, negatively impacting human and ecosystem health.

This webinar will provide an overview on chemical contaminants in Lake Huron, their presence in tributaries, and what the presence of PFAS chemicals may mean for the health of the Lake. Participants will also learn how they can make a difference and have an opportunity to ask questions to our experts.
