The conference will be held from January 10th-11th, 2022 at the University of Vermont.
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Clean Water Act of 1972, the conference will bring together lake and watershed stakeholders, including researchers, management practitioners, and the public, to learn about the state of research on Lake Champlain. The conference will feature representation and research from New York, Vermont, Québec, and beyond, providing an opportunity for discussion, networking, and collaboration across Lake Champlain’s multi-jurisdictional watershed.
The organizers welcome proposals across a broad range of subject areas applicable to Lake Champlain. For example, sessions from the 2018 conference included fish, wildlife, and habitat, cyanobacteria, road salt, cultural heritage, nutrients, algal blooms, tile drains, geology, land use and land cover, and ecosystem resilience.
Proposals for sessions are being accepted through April 16th. Individuals may submit a proposal for a topic they would like to see covered at the conference by emailing Lauren Jenness, firstname.lastname@example.org, with a short description of the topic.
