The Lake Kashagawigamog Organization (LKO) presents:

‘Love Your Lake’ Zoom Spring Seminar Series

TOPIC: Protecting our Lakes Forever: Moving from Rehabilitation to Protection during a Time of Climate Change

SPEAKER: Norman Yan, PhD FRSC

First with the Ontario government, then at York University, and finally with the Friends of the Muskoka Watershed, Norman Yan had devoted half a century of work to understanding human impacts on Ontario’s lakes, how the damage can be fixed, and it’s re-occurrence prevented. Norman did his MSc on the effects of acid rain on the microscopic plants in lakes, the phytoplankton, and his PhD on effects of metals on animal plankton, the “little living lawnmowers in our lakes”. He and his wife Sandy moved to Muskoka 35 years ago, and working from the Dorset Environmental Science Centre, he continued his work on the effects of shoreline development, acid rain and metal pollution on lakes. Norman has co-authored over 200 scientific articles, a body of work that has garnered over 10,000 scholarly citations, provincial and national awards for research excellence, academic fellowships in Europe and Australia, and, in 2012, an induction into the Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada.
