The Ossipee Aquifer: A Story of Water crankie is a creative project of Chocorua Lake Conservancy, Cook Memorial Library, Green Mountain Conservation Group, and Yeoman’s Fund for the Arts.  The project brings awareness to the importance of protecting the aquifer for future generations.

The crankie is a 30-foot communal painting that acts as a “graphic novel”. The following video created by Peggy Johnson  shows the 30ft long “scroll” as it is “cranked” along.
