Hello LSC.

Thanks to everyone who dug out from the 18" of snow from Saturday, and joined us, the Wells Village Library, and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM) for the Lake Champlain Watershed Giant Map experience in Wells this afternoon.

Educator Meghan Hill from the LCMM spoke with visitors about numerous topics as they explored this accurate and detailed 35’ x 27’ giant map:

Kids participated in a scavenger hunt to find things on the map, and learn along the way:

Meghan also gave a presentation "Climate Change and Our Lakes":

...and she also demonstrated the impacts of stormwater runoff using a watershed model:

We hope all of our attendees today enjoyed the event!

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.

The next event for Spring will be in May, and will focus on migratory birds. We'll let you know when this event is scheduled - and we hope you'll join us!

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

The LSCA and Wells Village Library would like to the thank Meghan and the LCMM for this event, and The Modern Woodmen of America for the use of their building.
