CBFS Public Outreach Activities

Dave White from Sea Grant facilitated CBFS presence at boat shows and the State Fair.  The education initiative allowed for redesigned travelling trunks (specimens and fact sheets for use in the classroom) to get to the surrounding school districts.  Jackson, Rudstam and Watkins presented for the Oneida Lake Association and New York Federation of Lake Associations, and at the annual Fish Commission meetings.  Ellen George was interviewed about cisco on NPR, presented on cisco for local communities and maintained and active cisco twitter account. Our web site was overhauled and is now accessible compliant. Beth Whitmore participated in the teacher cruise with the Lake Guardian, helping 20 teachers get hands-on experience with sampling large lakes from a research vessel.  She reported that teachers are the best and really interested in the science and issues.
