Sail Ho! Join the Community Science Institute on an exploration of Cayuga Lake aboard the Floating Classroom. For the 16th year running, CSI’s 4-H2O Youth Education Program will be partnering with Discover Cayuga Lake’s Floating Classroom to collect and analyze water samples from Cayuga Lake. Participants will learn how to collect water samples using a Van Dorn sampler and will analyze them while aboard the Floating Classroom’s boat, the MV Teal. Data collected by participants will be included in CSI’s online water quality database, helping to better our collective understanding of the health of Cayuga Lake!
This is a great opportunity for all ages to participate in local water quality science! Space is limited to 47 participants, so sign up while there is still time!
Reservations are required at least three days in advance. Cruises aboard the Floating Classroom will depart from the Allen H. Treman Marina at 800 Taughannock Blvd. Ithaca, NY. Please arrive 15 minutes before the departure time for check in. If you need to cancel your reservation please do so at least one day in advance.
COVID-19 Safety Precautions: We are limiting the number of participants in this program to 47. All surfaces will be routinely disinfected.
