Four Lake Ontario Counties Join Together to Submit Application for National Marine Sanctuary

Submerged shipwrecks such as the St. Peter, 120 feet deep in the Lake Ontario waters off Pultneyville, would be promoted and preserved through the designation of a Great Lake Ontario National Marine Sanctuary. The 136-foot long schooner sank in 1898.

“Southeastern Lake Ontario is eligible for consideration due to the age, type and preserved state of numerous historic shipwrecks and many other features,” said Oswego County Administrator Phil Church, who acted as the emcee for the announcement. “Our goal in seeking an NMS designation is to establish international recognition for the unique features of the region and increase economic, recreational, scientific research and educational activities.”

I have been a Girl Scout for 11 years and have had the most fun and have created some of the best memories of my life through scouting. I have had more opportunities as a Girl Scout than I would ever have imagined. I have camped a lot, earned badges and sold delicious Girl Scout Cookies, of course, but Girl Scouts is so much more than those activities.

Locking through Lock 24

I think everyone has at least one thing that is a must-do during the summer. For me it is spending time on the Erie Canal away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday world. This year I took the MidLakes Navigation’s Emita II from Dutchman’s Landing to Cross Lake. The name Dutchman’s Landing intrigues me. Captain Dan Wiles explained that before MidLakes Navigation bought the land there was a bar there of the same name.
