Each year I represent the University and specifically the College of Science and the Environmental Sciences Program at the Lake Worth Lagoon Fest. This event is a community-wide outreach event which highlights the environment of Lake Worth Lagoon, its opportunities (fishing, boating, nature studies etc.) and its rejuvenation.
In 2016 south Florida experienced several cyanobacterial (aka “algal”) blooms and I provided information to the public through numerous media interviews (CBS,NBC, National Public Radio, Channel 5 (WPTV),WPTC-FaceTime, Palm Beach Post and others.
