In her presentation on February 19, 2019 Dr. Tyrna will include a broad overview of exactly what is RedTide, how it initiates, leading theories regarding initiation, nutrients used throughout the bloom stages from off shore to near shore, the portion of those nutrients that are contributable by humans, and what we cando about our contributable portion. The public is invited to this event.
The best advice I ever heard was to only pay attention to what people do and forget everything they say. A neighbor may talk with us over coffee, for example on organizational skills, giving an elaborate list to follow precisely for a successful, well prepared path to success. We may diligently write down each detail in an effort to have a better, less stress filled life.
