    Dan Egan, author of The Death and Life of the Great Lakes, gave a keynote address at Monday, January 8th. This event was free and open to the public!

    Focusing on the past, present, and particularly the future of the Lake, the conference included interdisciplinary sessions on climate change, cyanobacteria, native fish restoration, contaminants and toxins, stormwater management technology, cultural and heritage resources, flood resilience, education and outreach, and more. The conference brought together Lake and watershed stakeholders, including researchers, management practitioners, and the public, to learn the state of research on Lake Champlain and provided an opportunity for discussion, networking, and potential collaboration. The conference was multi-jurisdictional, featuring representation and research from New York, Vermont, Québec, and beyond.
