Public education is key to tackling Lake Champlain pollution issues

Media Appearances

LCI frequently participates in a wide variety of media, with the express goal of educating and engaging the public on the complex issues facing Lake Champlain. We give expert testimony, share informed opinions on breaking news, take reports and journalists out on the lake for hands-on learning, and provide a voice representing the best interests of Lake Champlain.

Public seminars and guest speakers

At your request, LCI team members will come talk to your classroom, organization, board, club, committee or other group about the latest on Lake Champlain water quality. Presentations can be crafted to fit your agenda, but past topics have included fish biology, social and economic benefits of fishing, at-home pollution prevention methods, basic ecology, and general discussions of current water quality threats and solutions. Contact us for further information and scheduling. 

Informational Campaigns on current policy updates and involvement opportunities

Building on our believe that informed people will be the solution to our water quality issues, we leverage email, press releases, media appearances, and social media to educate the public and officials about important new information, urgent calls to action, upcoming events and other opportunities to make an impact.


Taking participants in a deep dive into the water quality conversation, we gather stakeholders for a trip onto Lake Champlain to explore the history of our waters, and how we can shape the future.

Clean Water Cafes

In partnership with the Conservation Law Foundation and the Connecticut River Conservancy, we meet community members for a round-table discussion of the threats to water quality and to discuss ways everyone can take action.
