We'd like to let you know about an upcoming mini-webinar from the Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds, entitled: "Overview of the Lake Wise Program".
This seminar will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, February 21st from 12 PM - 1:15 PM. You can RSVP to attend here: https://vermontlakes.org/event/lake_wise_program/.
Alison Marchione, the Lake Wise Coordinator for the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, will speak about the Lake Wise Program she has recently come to lead.
Alison will cover the reasons for the program’s existence, review the process of getting Lake Wise assessments, and briefly speak about the Lake Wise “Gold Award”. She will also cover several common best management practices for lake shorelines and describe how lake associations can help promote the Lake Wise program.
There will be ample time for attendees to ask questions about these and other topics, e.g., bioengineering, project funding, shoreline permits, etc.Lake Wise is a program developed by Vermont’s Lakes and Ponds Program to recognize outstanding efforts by homeowners who live along a lakeshore to protect the water quality and habitat along the shoreline and within the near-shore area of the lake.
This is such an important program for long term health of Lake St. Catherine - and we are heading into our 5th year in 2023!
