We're seeking the help of community members and businesses to complete our $180,000 fundraising effort, to launch the MV Teal, the new home of the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom,  in May, 2018!  We're calling our campaign "A Boat For Everyone" because the continuing mission of the Floating Classroom is to provide great experiences for everyone.  Each year, we take over 1500 students onto the lake, and provide financial assistance to make sure no one is left behind.  The Teal, and our new Eco-Tourism initiative, will help us provide more lake access and educational programming than ever before.  You can help!  Donate to Discover Cayuga Lake's Boat for Everyone campaign
