The LGA Floating Classroom - hands-on aquatic learning for all ages

LGA education staff teach a class aboard the LGA's Floating Classroom vessel
Lake George Association education staff talk about Lake George, its history, its formation and its ecology during a Floating Classroom program.

From earthquakes and glaciers to stormwater and invasive species, come aboard the LGA’s Floating Classroom, the Rosalia Anna Ashby, for two hours this summer to learn all about Lake George and how to keep the Lake’s water clean and clear.

Onboard, you’ll enjoy a hands-on adventure and learn all about Lake George water quality.  You will find out what makes Lake George unique.

You’ll measure water clarity, catch zooplankton, and test pH and temperature.

You’ll find out if Lake George is healthy, and what you can do to help keep it that way.
