Water has an impact on our environment, economy, and community. The Foundation is dedicated to understanding Lake Hopatcong’s value as a vital resource and passing that knowledge along to our children, ensuring that it will be carried to future generations.
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation’s Floating Classrrom serves as an interactive learning center on Lake Hopatcong. The vessel enhances both the Foundation’s environmental school field trip program as well as provides education opportunities to the public with scientific equipment right on board to facilitate a hands-on adventure for learning all about Lake Hopatcong and water ecology.
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation aims to bring lake education—with components of ecology, environment and safety–into local schools. We coordinate with local school districts, as well as local private schools, to secure opportunities that expose students of all ages to the many important aspects of Lake Hopatcong life.
