The Story of Invasive Species in Madison Lakes.

FREE, open to the public
Invasive species change lakes. How are they changing ours? Dr. Walsh will discuss the invaders that call our lakes home, and what this means for our water quality.
We'll learn more about what's lurking at our beach, from a menacing-looking water flea that messes with clarity in Lake Mendota to a frilly water plant that decays in heaps on Lake Monona shores.
Dr. Walsh is a freshwater ecologist and researcher. Jake's work focuses on the ecological and economic impacts of the invasive spiny water flea in Lake Mendota, highlighting the extreme costs associated with degraded water quality due to the invasion. Jake is motivated by the intersection between the ecology of lakes and the people who care about them, making aquatic invasive species a perfect sandbox to explore and teach about the natural world and our place in it.
