Moose Mountains Regional Greenways and UNH Cooperative Extension will sponsor a fun and educational cruise on the Winnipesauke Belle Charter Boat on Sunday, September 26. Robert Craycraft, Cooperative Extension Educational Program Coordinator, will be the on-board guide to teach participants about critical water quality issues in New Hampshire lakes. The 2-hour cruise will start at the Wolfeboro Town Docks at 2pm.
Robert Craycraft has been engaged in water quality monitoring on lakes and ponds throughout New Hampshire since 1989. He coordinates the NH Lakes Lay Monitoring Program, in which volunteers track water quality changes in NH lakes, ponds, and streams. Robert will discuss results of the extensive water quality studies of Lake Winnipesauke and will demonstrate the equipment used for water sampling. Participants will have an opportunity to collect water transparency data and to observe aquatic organisms collected during the cruise.
There will be ample opportunity to enjoy the fall scenery around the lake as well as on-board live music by Celtic Odyssey. The Winnipesauke Belle offers complimentary ohrs d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
