Education

Educational Presentations

The Institute provides free, power point educational presentations to schools, business organizations and community associations. Groups of twelve or less can be accommodated in our office; larger groups can be scheduled if the Boating Center classroom is available or we may come to your location. Typically about 45 minutes in length, these events can be combined with a clean-up event. Age-related videos are shown for younger age students.

Contact Dr. Bailey by email or telephone to schedule a presentation.

We have written several papers on the Lake, including A Year In The Life(2.1 MB PDF); OxygenWater Levels & Tidal Flows; and Urban Runoff.
