    Lake Champlain Research Conference

    January 8-9, 2018 | Davis Center, University of Vermont


    We have reached our participant capacity for the conference. However, you are welcome to attend Dan Egan’s evening keynote at 7 PM on Monday, January 9th. The event is free and open to the public, space permitting.

    Focusing on the past, present, and particularly the future of the Lake, the conference will include interdisciplinary sessions on climate change, cyanobacteria, native fish restoration, contaminants and toxins, stormwater management technology, cultural and heritage resources, flood resilience, education and outreach, and more. The conference will bring together Lake and watershed stakeholders, including researchers, management practitioners, and the public, to learn the state of research on Lake Champlain and will provide an opportunity for discussion, networking, and potential collaboration. The conference will be multi-jurisdictional, featuring representation and research from New York, Vermont, Québec, and beyond.

    A preliminary agenda is available here but will be subject to change.

    Please email Ellen Kujawa at with any questions. We look forward to seeing you in January!
