    Zebs on the Pigs

    If the rocks lurking just below the surface don’t get you in higher water, the zebra mussels on the rocks might when lake levels are down.

    The Pigs are a group of rocks that pose a hazard to boaters near Appletree Point in Burlington, VT. Zebra mussels are an invasive species that pose a hazard to swimmers throughout the lake. Neither pigs nor zebra mussels belong in Lake Champlain. Learn more about aquatic invasive species.
