    WATCH THE 2023 CYANOHABS MEETING NOW

    January 23, 2023 Colloquium on the exceptional hypersaline ecosystem at Oregon’s Lake Abert


    WATCH THE COLLOQUIUM RECORDING NOW

    Lake Abert was dry during the summers of 2021 and 2022, thereby denying vital habitat to hundreds of thousands of shorebirds that feast on the bounty of the lake’s exceptional hypersaline habitat. This is an ecological calamity with potential dire consequences for the survival of some bird populations.

    This Colloquium aims to present current knowledge on the lake and its ecology.  You will hear about its amazing capacity to produce shrimp and fly invertebrates that birds feast on, and about the birds that visit Lake Abert. You will also hear about how climate is changing and how we think those changes will affect the landscape in the Chewaucan valley surrounding Lake Abert.

    We present the science of Lake Abert as information to be used for decisions that we hope will help preserve the lake ecosystem.
