Owasco Marine donated a rental pontoon boat so students from the Blueprint II Middle School group could experience our lake "up front & personal" during a recent "Community Field Trip". Owasco Watershed Lake Association President Joe Wasileski took three groups of students out into the lake and down the Owasco River to discuss and experience all of the opportunities and challenges our lake has to offer. The fact that Owasco Lake is the drinking water source for close to 55,000 people make it a vital natural resource that must be protected. Pictured with Wasileski are Danielle Thomas, Daniel Biljanoski, Matt Trupiano, Jenna Alberici, Nick Marinelli, & Colette Swanbery.
Thanks to Sue Muldoon for passing on this story and also for her efforts to educate the Blueprint II Middle School group about the environment and the Owasco Lake Watershed.
