LaPlatte River Walk, Shelburne, Vermont

June 25 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Join LCBP naturalist Laura Hollowell for an exploration of the LaPlatte River Marsh Natural Area. Managed by The Nature Conservancy, the marsh at the end of the LaPlatte River is an oasis for wildlife and migratory birds in Shelburne. Join Laura for a leisurely walk along the river and through a rare valley clayplain forest. Uncover the story of the area’s natural and human communities and learn how this important wetland ecosystem filters and cleans the water that empties into Lake Champlain.

This outing is a part of the LCBP’s year-long commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. The act plays a significant role in protecting wetlands by regulating the discharge of fill materials into waters of the U.S. (which includes wetlands) for development and construction projects.
