Windermere Science Evening 2024
The Old Laundry Theatre

Join us for an evening of talks from Taylor Butler-Eldridge (University of Exeter), Dr Louise Lavictoire (Freshwater Biological Association), Dr Ellie Mackay and Dr Steve Thackeray (UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology), Sammy Graves (South Cumbria Rivers Trust), and Dr Ben Surridge (Lancaster University). The evening will feature historical and current research, monitoring, and practical initiatives to help understand and improve water quality and ecological health within the Windermere catchment. 

It will be a chance to learn more about the main pressures that affect water quality, long-term data, and our freshwater critters (human and non-human) swimming in this iconic yet fragile ecology. There will be a chance to ask our speakers about the state of Windermere and what can be done to help improve conditions. Talks include:

Taylor Butler-Eldridge
Louise Lavictoire
Ellie Mackay and Steve Thackeray
Sammy Graves
Ben Surridge
