The Lake Hopatcong Foundation’s spring educational field trip season launched this past week with the debut of the Floating Classroom.

About 250 fourth- and fifth-grade students from Roxbury and Jefferson Townships climbed aboard the Floating Classroom as one component of their Lake Hopatcong educational field trip at Hopatcong State Park.

The new vessel has scientific equipment on board to provide a hands-on adventure for learning all about Lake Hopatcong and the watershed that is vital to its health.  

In addition to the 40-minute ride aboard floating classroom, the students experienced an interactive Enviroscape model which demonstrates the importance of watershed protection, explored the health of the Musconetcong River with macroinvertebrate sampling and a took a discovery nature hike, exposing students to many important and unique aspects of Lake Hopatcong.

Nearly 800 students are lined up to participate in the Foundation’s educational field trips in May and June. Inquiries for participation in the 2019 field trip program will be accepted later this year, after the Foundation has had a chance to evaluate the spring program.
