The weather is looking fabulous for our first Lake Hopatcong Foundation Floating Classroom public cruise this coming Monday and there are tickets still available! The Lake Hopatcong Foundation Floating Classroom will embark on a series of public learning cruises from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Monday from July 7 through August 27. Advance tickets are recommended (see below), however, walk-on guests are welcome, as space permits.
The Monday excursions will depart from Hopatcong State Park (260 Lakeside Boulevard, Landing, NJ) and include experiments such as water clarity testing with secchi disks and collecting and studying phytoplankton from lake water samples. The trip fees are $18 for adults, $12 for children up to 17 years old, and $16 for seniors ages 65 and up. Activities will be geared toward guests who are at least 10 years old, but younger guests are welcome to come aboard and join the cruise.
Please note: the trip fee is in addition to the cost of entering Hopatcong State Park, which is $6 for New Jersey residents and $10 for out-of-state residents per carload on weekdays in the summer. After disembarking from the floating classroom, visitors are welcome to enjoy the other amenities at Hopatcong State Park.
Come out and join us this summer on a fun and interactive learning cruise on Lake Hopatcong!
