Yahara Lakes 101

Learn more about the science behind the issues impacting our lakes!

Yahara Lakes 101 is a series of educational events open to the public. The event brings the research of scientists, lake experts and leaders in front of community leaders, leading to a better understanding of the threats facing Madison’s lakes and how we can take action to preserve them.

The series is also 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 technical and non-technical audiences alike. Enjoy a presentation and questions and answers over coffee and pastries with beautiful Lake Mendota as the backdrop.
