We would like to thank the Cambridge School District for participating in our Pontoon Classroom.  It was a great day to have Ms. Leverson's class learn about Lake Ripley.  This great group of students collected water quality data, sampled bottom sediments, discussed the watershed, and identified aquatic plants.  Thank you to Paul Garrison from the WNDR for participating!
