Environment

Our staff works to engage with the community to solve and respond to key environmental challenges, reduce and make more equitable our collective use of the Earth's resources, and inspire respect for natural systems and our reliance on them.   We assist lake and river associations to implement projects supported by the community such as Lake Champlain Basin Program, Lincoln Pond Assoc., Goodnow Flow Assoc., Boquet River Assoc. and Au Sable River Assoc., etc. We provide assistance for fledgling not-for-profit groups to organize and implement community development such as the Altai Assistance Project. We provide invasive animal and weed control recommendations and also work with organizations to implement community control programs.
