Education Programs Preserve Lake George

Learn Lake George Science

In support of our mission, “Educate For The Future,” the Lake George Association works to maintain a comprehensive anthology about the Science of Lake George.

For more than a century, we have provided information to students, visitors, municipal leaders and business owners about the geography, geology and ecology of Lake George, and about Lake George’s native plants, fish, and wildlife. We also provide information about current conditions and current development.

As part of our mission, we examine and teach why Lake George water is so clean, and we protect Lake George’s Class AA-Special water quality from threats such as stormwater and invasive species.

Learn about our Education Programs

Our science education resources support hands-on learning opportunities centered on our Floating Classroom, which takes students and the public out on Lake George to explore water quality, water conditions, and discuss life in Lake George.

These in-the-field programs are complemented by environmental education programs delivered in classrooms and to community organizations.  Both are provided free to schools within the Lake George watershed, with support from LGA members, grants, and contributors.

Our Education Mission

In addition to protecting our water now and in the future, our mission also includes educating for the future — helping people learn and discover the wonders of Lake George and the challenges to keeping it wonderful. Our education programs have two key goals:

  • To build and develop knowledge to address the environmental issues that affect Lake George and its watershed; and
  • To empower and motivate our children and their families to become environmental stewards and to make a difference in their communities.

Join us on the Floating Classroom!  Support our education programs through your membership. Explore the information in our Lake George Watershed Data Atlas and our Lake George Science resources to discover Lake George on your own.
