THE KEEPER OF SKANEATELES LAKE: Remembering Dr. Bob Werner

Dr. Bob Werner lived on the shores of Skaneateles Lake, and during an especially busy life, he volunteered much of his free time to insure his beloved lake stayed pristine and beautiful.

Werner passed away in mid-September last year, after fighting a short battle with cancer. Werner was a faculty member at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), a state school located on the campus of Syracuse University, since 1966. His specialties were limnology (the study of freshwater lakes) and ichthyology (the branch of zoology studying fish).

A memorial service will be held Wednesday, August 4 at Skaneateles Country Club. Because of space limitations the service is invitation only. But the event will be live-streamed.
