FREE ONLINE CYANOBACTERIA CONFERENCE: There is a free online conference this week on Tues/Wed if you would like to sit in on some of the sessions from 1pm to 5pm. The topics are all about cyanobacteria, presented by the University of New Hampshire and affiliates. You will need to register in advance. Because of zoom capacity issues, the conference is technically full, but they have written to encourage those interested to still register, as they'll let you in when it starts as the seats don't fill up due to no shows. This will all be online. Those registered can watch recorded sessions later, so even if you can't go due to work or full capacity, please register if you are interested in viewing the information at your convenience. https://blog.cyanos.org/2021/02/19/cmc-conference-mar2021/
