Yahara Lakes 101

Learn more about the science behind the issues that impact our lakes!

Yahara Lakes 101 is a series of educational events open to the public. The event creates opportunities to bring the research of scientists, lake experts and leaders in front of policy and decision makers, and business and 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.

Join us at Yahara Lakes 101

Events take place on the second Wednesday of the month from 8 – 9 a.m. at The Edgewater, 1001 Wisconsin Place. Admission is $10 at the door or free to Friends of Clean Lakes. Become a Friend of Clean Lakes today.

Come at 7:30 a.m. for a meet-and-greet and to enjoy your coffee, pastries, and fruit. The program begins at 8 a.m. and is dismissed by 9 a.m. with small group Q&A to follow. Advance registration is requested. Complimentary event parking will be available at The Edgewater.
