Late May to mid-June 2010

====

EVENING COMMUNITY ECO-CRUISE ON CAYUGA LAKE
5:00 pm, Wednesday June 2
Wells College boat dock, Aurora

The M/V Haendel, home of the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom, will depart from
the Wells College dock for a 90 minute educational cruise of the deep lake
waters offshore. Join Floating Classroom instructors for a casual yet
purposeful cruise on Cayuga Lake. Hands-on demonstrations will include a
plankton trawl, Secchi disk water clarity tests, and water quality testing.
All are encouraged to participate! Storytellers are welcome, as we seek to
bring the legend of Old Greenie, the Cayuga Lake monster, up to date!

A $10-$50 donation is requested to support the Floating Classroom's
educational programs. RSVP requested - Call (866) 846-4376. Find Us On the Web

The Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom is sponsored by local governments and
community partners, and provides lake access and education for all residents. 
Cruises are available for classes, community groups and organizations from May
to October.
