2019 School Field Trip to Lake George

This summer, LPSA sponsored an educational field trip for students at Lake Pleasant Central School in grades 7, 8, and 9.  The students, their teachers, and representatives from LPSA traveled to Lake George on June 17th and spent the day on the Lake George Association’s Floating Classroom.   During the excursion, the students (and adults) learned about the history of Lake George, the problems that the lake is facing (especially concerning invasive species), available methods to combat invasive species, and how to analyze lake water through the use of various types of equipment like collection nets, microscopes and Secchi disks.  A trained Lake George Association educator conducted the program on board the floating classroom.  This was a great educational opportunity for local students to be exposed to the work that scientists and environmental experts are doing to gather information on Lake George that will be helpful in protecting the health of that lake, and other lakes in the Adirondacks and elsewhere.
