Algae on the Falls

May 26th, 2012

The waterfall and pool below the falls inside the Black Bear Exhibit has some interesting algal growth.

Here’s some images:

The pool is scheduled to be cleaned next weekend, so if the long, flowing, green algae appeals to your senses, whether artistic or otherwise, stop by this week because it may soon be gone.

Enjoy!

  1. According to Larry, this is blue-green algae and not truly algae. This is the first year it’s “grown” on the waterfall.

    Yes, I think he’s right, cyanobacteria, a photosynthetic bacteria. As you say, never seen it growing on the falls before.
