Fresh Water Jellyfish in Cayuga Inlet?

Well, not exactly, but members of the Ithaca and Danby Rural Youth Program discovered a huge mystery creature in Cayuga Inlet by the Farmers' Market, which turns out to be a "Bryozoan".  Rather similar to a jelly, and somewhat similar to a coral, although not related.
