Pine Lake Partnership

The Pine Lake Institute collaborates with Oneonta City School District to form the Pine Lake Partnership, which enables members of each community to learn and work at Pine Lake. The Partnership is consistent with the key principles of environmental education and disseminates information and ideas that enable educators and students to explore the environment, investigate current issues, and promote environmental stewardship in an interdisciplinary style. For the approximately 200 Oneonta school children who visit Hartwick's environmental campus each year,  Pine Lake becomes a “classroom without walls.”
