Family Fun Aboard the OTTER II

Watershed Adventures Await…..
By Cami Wilbert

Are you searching for a unique outing for the family in 2020? Join the Friends for a Family Tadpole Patrol Adventure in the Cobbossee Watershed!

Tadpole Patrol is the Friends of the Cobbossee’s innovative and immersive learning experience aboard the Otter II, our 22’ pontoon boat. For 14 years, children and then adults have boarded our “floating classroom” to learn about lake ecology and how to test and protect water quality. Due to COVID-19 in 2020, we are only offering our Family Tadpole Patrol program this summer. We ask that all participants are within the same family unit or “bubble”.

So, what is Family Tadpole Patrol? First of all, it’s FUN for the whole family! Your family will enjoy a 1 ½ hour excursion where “kids of all ages” can observe wildlife above and below the water, share historical lake facts and experience water monitoring with professional equipment. It’s a wonderful “staycation” adventure for the whole family in 2020 as you explore some of the many surrounding local lakes! Even better, you can enjoy a Family Tadpole Patrol adventure for the amazing low price of only $50 for up to six family members!
