The R/V David Folger is home at last

Today was the final leg of a long journey that saw the R/V David Folger entering Lake Champlain at Whitehall, NY and traveling north to Point Bay Marina in Charlotte, Vermont. It was also a very special moment because the vessel’s namesake, Dave Folger, was on board.

A highlight of today’s journey was stopping for a while outside of the Fort Ticonderoga delta, where Dave talked about his work with Middlebury students and their research that stopped the International Paper Company’s practice of polluting Lake Champlain.

It was a beautiful day, with blue skies and flags flying.

Finally, the Folger turned into Town Farm Bay and docked.

Home at last.
