Informed and Involved Public

GOAL: Basin residents and visitors will understand and appreciate Lake Champlain Basin resources, and will possess a sense of personal responsibility that results in behavioral changes and actions to reduce pollution.

A public that understands the Basin’s water quality and resource management challenges as well as possible solutions can make informed choices about protection and restoration. For more than two decades, the Lake Champlain Basin Program and its partners have worked on many fronts to educate citizens of all ages. Through formal education programs in classrooms and camps, outreach efforts at public events, and focused media initiatives, citizens are learning and getting involved in protecting and restoring the Lake and its watershed.
