Freshwater Education
Informing Lake Groups and Educating Tomorrow's Young Scientists

Are you looking for high-quality educational presentations about lakes for your group's annual meeting or the kids in your classroom? We offer dynamic, informative, and easily understood presentations on a wide range of topics related to lakes. We use interactive Google Earth maps, underwater video, and animated graphs to make our presentations unique, meaningful, and captivating. More importantly, we love to "talk shop" about lakes, and have a reputation for providing enthusiastic and well-organized programs.
