A successful first season for the Floating Classroom!

Launched this past summer, the Floating Classroom was a big hit with young and old alike!

“This tour was everything it promised… lots of fun & learning, low stress hands on lab activities and informative lecture about geology and history.  Thank you FC crew!” was one of many wonderful comments from participants this summer, and Miriam from Concord stated the program was “fantastic support to her home school curriculum.”


Checking out plankton on the Floating Classroom

The Floating Classroom, a fun and engaging program designed to cultivate an informed community of residents, visitors, and new stewards of the lake, was made possible with generous funding from the Environmental Education Fund and Nighswander Community Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation, the Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation, and numerous local business sponsors.
