100 YEARS OF LIMNOLOGY ON CAYUGA!
Scientists have been studying Cayuga Lake for over 100 years. Come find out what's been learned!
  • Learn about the Renwick Field Station, the first "limnology lab" in North America, built right along the Inlet! (limnology is the study of fresh water lakes and wetlands)

  • Compare plants and animals collected during the cruise with those found in Cayuga waters over 100 years ago! (Using a 1903 Cayuga Lake plankton survey.)

Our featured guests for the day- Nelson Hairston, Frank H.T. Rhodes Professor of Environmental Science in Cornell's Dept. of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, and lake ecology specialist Colleen Kearns. The weather will be fine - call today for reservations!
