All Aboard the Floating Classroom!Floating Classroom

The Winnipesaukee Watershed Association is excited to ‘launch’ a new program this summer on the Big Lake!

Join us on a lake ecology cruise aboard our new Floating Classroom!  Beginning July 1 and running through Sept. 5, educational cruises will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week throughout the summer.

The Floating Classroom is a fun and informative hands-on lake ecology program for adults, children, students, and summer campers who are interested to know what shapes Lake Winnipesaukee’s natural beauty.   The tour features a 90 minute boat excursion on a pontoon boat, where participants will learn fun and interesting facts about the history, geology, and ecology of the lake, as well as more serious threats and water quality issues facing the lake.  Passengers will have an opportunity to be the scientist through collecting water samples, measuring water clarity, and determining what’s living below the surface with our underwater camera.
