Eric Patterson talks about algae at Science on Tap last Wednesday evening at Trinity County Brewing Company.

Algae isn’t a bad or scary, and in moderation it can actually be a good thing, according to Eric Patterson, data steward and ecologist at the Trinity River Restoration Program.

Patterson said this is one of the reasons why he wanted to talk about algae at this month’s Science on Tap program, titled, “The Good, The Slimy and The Unknown. Algae in the Trinity River.” This exploration into algae started when in 2018 they saw the largest amount of algae growth anybody’s seen since 2018.
