Lake Ontario Environmental Science Shipboard Course
http://faculty.niagara.edu/wje/ontario.htm

Join us aboard the US Environmental Protection Agency's "Lake Guardian" for
a hands-on, experiential course to study Lake Ontario.  Participants will
board the ship in Buffalo, NY, and cruise through the Welland Canal before
spending time on the waters of Lake Ontario.  The ship will return to
Buffalo, NY, at the end of the cruise.The Lake Guardian will serve as both a
floating laboratory and a home-away-from-home for participants, but Lake
Ontario and its tributaries will be the real classroom for this course.
Teachers - grades 4-12 (and a select group of college students) will study
its fish biology, environmental issues such as toxic contamination, Areas of
Concern - including the Niagara River and the Oswego River, and invasive
species such as zebra mussels and the round goby.  The course will include
lectures, lab work and several off-ship field trips to study environments on
the shores of Lake Ontario.
