The RV David Folger has arrived.
We hopped on board the College’s new research vessel as it entered Lake Champlain at Whitehall, New York, for the final leg of its transoceanic journey from Vancouver, British Columbia. The arrival of the Folger was keenly anticipated, as the vessel has already been prepped for use in four science courses this fall semester; the boat will be officially dedicated on October 20.
Here, we offer a glimpse of the many features of Middlebury’s floating laboratory on Lake Champlain:
