Informed and Involved Public

Informed & 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. Organizations and institutions throughout the Basin are working on many fronts to educate citizens of all ages. Through formal education programs in classrooms and camps and with outreach efforts at public events, partners are equipping citizens to take action and change behavior to improve water quality.
