Please join us for an evening on the Chautauqua Belle to observe and learn about the importance of natural shorelines, buffer strips, and re-naturalization projects occurring on the shoreline and in the watershed to prevent and reduce water pollution, soil erosion, and mitigate clear water and a healthy Chautauqua Lake.
Wednesday evening, August 22nd, at 6 PM we will board the Chautauqua Belle at the dock in Midway State Park, Bemus Point, NY and take a 2-hour tour of Chautauqua Lake’s shoreline in an entertaining, enjoyable and educational venue to learn personal watershed management techniques and environmental lake management practices.
Pre-sale tickets are available for $40 per person online by (CLICKING HERE) or by contacting either office via phone or in person.
Everyone lives in a watershed; how we conduct our lives can have an effect on the water quality of Chautauqua Lake! Fortunately, there are many simple things that each of us can do to be stewards of Chautauqua Lake and help to decrease the amount of sediment and nutrients entering our lake and polluting our waters.
The Chautauqua Lake Association and The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy are both non-profit organizations that share educating the community about Chautauqua Lake’s ecosystem and environmental lake management practices in our mission statements. We both are dedicated to addressing the root causes of the excessive plant and algae growth and loss of lake depth due to sedimentation and runoff. Together, we have over 90 years of experience with research-based approaches and dedication to protect our beautiful Chautauqua Lake. We are partnering on this educational campaign to inform the community on how our actions in the watershed can translate to a healthy Chautauqua Lake.
