    Diving In: Rowing to a Thriving Community

    In the summer of 2015, the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum brought community rowing to the village of Champlain, NY. The pilot project became the focus of a popular community gathering, with dozens of citizens coming out on Friday evenings to picnic and row a replica of an historic rowing gig on the Chazy River. Participants learned about the boat-building heritage in their community and about water quality and habitat issues in the Lake Champlain Basin.
