Event Dates
  • 07/24/2019 7:30 am - 9:00 am
Event Description

At Clean Lakes Alliance, we believe that healthy lakes will lead to a healthy community. But what are the real health implications of poor water quality? In this month’s Yahara Lakes 101 talk, we’ll hear from Claire Gervais, MD about pollutants commonly found in runoff and their health risks to the community. The presentation will focus on health impacts of pesticide and PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl) exposure. The event is held at The Edgewater. Come at 7:30 a.m. for a meet-and-greet and to enjoy coffee, pastries, and fruit. The program begins at 8 a.m., and class is dismissed by 9 a.m. Complimentary event parking will be available at The Edgewater. Admission is FREE for Friends of Clean Lakes. If you are not a Friend, admission is $10 per event. Registration for each event is requested for all attendees. Yahara Lakes 101 is a series of educational events open to the public and a great chance for residents to learn more about the science behind the issues that affect our lakes. Each month we feature a different expert to make the science accessible and interesting to non-technical audiences. The series is produced in partnership with the UW-Madison Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, with presenting sponsors First Weber Foundation and Johnson Financial Group, hosting sponsor The Edgewater Madison, supporting sponsor National Guardian Life Insurance Company, and media partner the Isthmus.
