The LCBP’s work is informed and guided by scientists across a broad range of disciplines. The expertise of these partners is critical to informing sound management decisions for the Basin’s resources. These people bring extensive experience in academia and government to the LCBP’s Committees and partnerships. While LCBP staff often are able to answer technical questions and are happy to speak to media, the scientists and resource managers who are working on their specific lake issues day-to-day often can provide the most recent objective, science-based information.
