ALL ABOARD THE FLOATING CLASSROOM THIS SUMMER!

The Lake Winnipesaukee Association’s (LWA) Floating Classroom has launched for the summer season.  Beginning July 2nd and running through Sept. 3rd, educational cruises will be offered Thursdays each week throughout the summer, as well as by special reservation.

The Floating Classroom is a fun and informative hands-on program designed to teach both young and old about lake ecology and the issues threatening Lake Winnipesaukee. Join us on an adventure into the past as we learn fun and interesting facts about the history, geology, and ecology of the lake. The tour features a 2 hr. boat excursion on a pontoon boat, where participants get an opportunity to be the scientist’, measuring water clarity, temperature, and viewing zooplankton collected with a plankton tow.

“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 last year’s participants.

Tours depart from the Weirs public docks on Thursdays at 10am and 1pm. The cost is $20 per adult and $15 per child under 16.  Members of the Lake Winnipesaukee Association receive a 10% discount.  Cruises should be booked two days in advance and registrations can be made on line at:  Floating Classroom Registration
