Jefferson Project Survey to Re-start When Ice is Gone

The high-tech bathymetry survey that's part of the in-depth study of Lake George coined the Jefferson Project, will likely re-start a bit later than expected due to the ice conditions on Lake George.

The Fund recently opened a new meeting space and launched an updated website:
