LCBP to Celebrate Clean Water
Grand Isle, VT – The LCBP will participate in the celebration of Vermont Clean Water Week with four events in the Lake Champlain watershed. As the summer begins to wind down, these events offer opportunities to learn and reflect on the importance of Lake Champlain and other water bodies.
