    Got Floodplain Forests?

    With Lake Champlain above flood stage for more than a month this spring, wetlands and floodplains along rivers and lake shorelines are critically important. They act as sponges and filters, storing flood waters, reducing erosion, and cleansing pollutants. Plus, they are great habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. Learn more about these important areas in the 2018 State of the Lake Report.
