Rotary Boat Being Used for Student Lessons at Lake Casitas

Rotary Boat Being Used for Student Lessons at Lake Casitas

After much planning and hard work, water conservation and watershed classes are now being taught to local elementary students by Rotary Ojai-West volunteers on a pontoon boat on Lake Casitas.

The Rotary club provides Coast Guard certified Captains and life vests to children on board to meet legal and safety standards. They also provide volunteer instructors and free educational materials for all students. Water education lessons are directly correlated to the California State Department of Education curriculum standards.

For additional information regarding this program please contact Ron Merckling at (805) 649-2251 Extension 118.
