Windermere Science Evening

Wednesday 15 November, 2023 at 6:30 pm

The Freshwater Biological Association and Lancaster University are hosting a Windermere Science evening at the Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness on Wednesday 15th November.  Please arrive for welcome drinks from 6pm and the presentations will begin at 6.30pm.

Join us for an evening of talks from the Freshwater Biological Association, UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Lancaster University and the Environment Agency. We will be discussing historical and current projects, research, and monitoring of water quality and ecology in the Windermere catchment. It is a chance to understand more about the main pressures that affect water quality, long term data and regulatory monitoring in the catchment. There will be a chance to ask questions to scientists about the state of Windermere and what needs to be done to improve its health.

Talks include:

  • Freshwater Biological Association: ‘Setting the scene: Windermere’s history and current pressures on water quality’? presented by Dr. Lynsey Haper.
  • UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology: ‘Long-term changes in the ecology of Windermere’. Presented by Steve Thackeray and Eleanor Mackay.
