The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is proud to provide award-winning environmental field trips geared to fourth and fifth Grades. During their visit, students learn about Lake Hopatcong, lake ecology, and how to protect our water resources through hands-on lessons aboard the Floating Classroom, in the Musconetcong River, and around Hopatcong State Park.
