Today, we and the Poultney Mettowee Natural Resources Conservation District were very happy to host Lake Shoreland Coordinator Alison Marchione from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation at Lake St. Catherine as Alison conducted a Lake Wise training.
All these fine folks were learning how to perform Lake Wise assessments for Lake St. Catherine, and other local lakes.
Thank you Alison, and all the trainees!
Lake Wise is a DEC program that works with lake property owners to help make their shoreline lake friendly.
If you would like to participate in Lake Wise this season, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we have a few spots left!
Finally, a cool stat that we learned today... Since the program's inception in 2014, 780 Lake Wise assessments have been performed, and 81 of those have taken place on Lake St. Catherine! That's over 10% of all the Lake Wise assessments in the State! This is a fantastic testament to the commitment of our lakeshore owners to work to preserve and protect beautiful Lake St. Catherine.

The LSCA has again earned a grant from the Lake Champlain Basin Program to perform Lake Wise assessments and implement projects for 2023.
