Learn Important Facts on the Health of Lake Hopatcong (Webinar)

If you are interested in the history and current health of Lake Hopatcong, this free education webinar is a cannot miss event to learn from a scientist that has been studying and working on Lake Hopatcong for 20 years.

If you have been following the Lake Hopatcong Commissions work, or any of the current Lake Hopatcong projects than the name of Dr. Fred Lubnow should be a familiar name, along with his fun presentation style that makes learning scientific facts, fun exciting and easy to learn. We mean the utmost respect to Dr. Lubnow as we compare his very effective presentation style to somewhere between Jim Carrey and Robin Williams.
