Libraries Love Lakes: The Giant Map Comes To Wells!

10 Mar 2024 4:31 PM | Jerremy Jones (Administrator)

The Wells Village Library and the Lake St. Catherine Association are excited to host the Giant Lake Champlain Watershed Map experience at the Modern Woodmen of America Hall, 133 Main State Route in Wells, on Sunday, March 24th from 11-2 PM.

Libraries Love Lakes - The Giant Map Comes To Wells

Educator Meghan Hill from the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM) will be on hand with the Giant Map, and a working watershed model to discuss the Lake Champlain Basin: history, water quality, geography, science, and much more. Lake St. Catherine is in the Lake Champlain Basin, and is included on this accurate and detailed 35’ x 27’ giant map. You can learn more about the Giant Map on the LCMM website: www.lcmm.org/giantmap/.

Meghan will also be giving a presentation at 1 PM to discuss the impacts of climate change contributing to our recent mild winters, and the issues that are caused because of it. Families are invited to arrive at any time between 11-2 PM to interact with the Giant Map. The first 20 families to arrive will receive an event themed kit of on-topic books and activities.

Libraries Love Lakes is an outreach project which pairs school and public libraries with lake scientists to provide collaborative programming emphasizing the importance of lakes in our everyday lives. This will be the first event of four that are planned for the Libraries Love Lakes Program for 2024. Three more seasonally themed future events are being planned for the spring, winter, and fall.

This and future Libraries Love Lakes events are made possible by a grant from the Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) and NEIWPCC.

We hope to see you there!
