Algal Bloom Action Team Receives Outstanding Regional Collaboration Achievement Award

The North Central Region Water Network’s Algal Bloom Action Team has received an Outstanding Regional Collaboration Achievement Award from the Association of Natural Resource Extension Professionals (ANREP). The team won the award for organizing and hosting a three-day virtual research symposium in January 2021. More than 1,000 Extension professionals, researchers, and water professionals nationwide learned about emergent harmful algal bloom research and facilitated outreach on the subject. Eugene Braig, aquatic ecosystems program director for CFAES, is a member of the team and played an active role in coordinating and moderating the symposium. See more information at
