Looking for something really unique and fun to do this summer? We have four week-long summer programs and three Saturday afternoon sailing sessions on beautiful Otsego Lake to choose from!
Four Freshwater Ecology Summer Adventure Programs for middle school and high school age youth (ages 12-17) are lead by experienced field biologists. Participants will study watershed ecology by conducting hands-on assessments of water quality of local streams, rivers and lakes. Our programs integrate the study of forest ecology, wildlife and the impact of invasive species and use hiking, cycling, and boating to get to various study sites.
