Winter Wednesdays Speaker Series: The Clean Water Act at 50 with Susan Evans McClure

March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the nation’s first comprehensive legislation protecting water quality. Life in the Champlain Valley has always been and continues to be deeply connected to the water of Lake Champlain. This monumental legislation expanded federal protection of the waters of the United States, paving the way for policies, protections and funding dedicated towards clean water. Subsequent amendments to the Act strengthened protections for Lake Champlain, creating the Lake Champlain Basin Program and helping to protect the water of the lake for generations to come. Susan Evans McClure will discuss the founding, the impact, and the legacy of this watershed legislation on our watershed.

Susan Evans McClure is the executive director of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.

The Winter Wednesdays series is a partnership project of the Worthen Library and South Hero Land Trust. Funding made possible by members and donors of each organization. All events are free. All are welcome. Please email worthenlibrary@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns about accessing online content.
