Comments Off on Lake Management Presentation by Christian Jenne on June 18th
Christian Jenne is a Masters Degree candidate at SUNY Oneonta’s Lake Management program. He is working with us at Truesdale Lake during his graduate studies to develop a Lake Management plan to help guide our lake stewardship efforts.
