2022 Research Cruise

Researchers prepare a plankton net aboard the Jessie B research vessel

Learn about Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi and one of the cleanest large lakes in the world!


Join us as we partner with the Flathead Harbor at Lakeside for an afternoon cruise aboard the Far West. From Lakeside, MT we will travel to one of the Flathead Lake Biological Station’s (FLBS) lake monitoring sites for a research demonstration, and FLBS researchers will provide an overview of Flathead Watershed ecology and our Flathead Monitoring Program. Food and beverages will be provided by Harbor Grille.

Limited space is available on the tour boat, so reservations are required.
