Report on Lake Champlain conditions by becoming a cyanobacteria monitor!

To participate as a cyanobacteria volunteer monitor, individuals must:

  • Attend an online training session (lasting about 2.5 to 3 hours)
  • Have weekly access to a public or private lakeshore location
  • Wear a face mask and practice physical distancing at public sites including state parks, beaches and boat launches
  • Self-quarantine for 14 days if arriving to the Lake Champlain watershed from out of state and before monitoring at any public site
  • Agree not to sample or assess conditions at any public locations if you are feeling sick, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • Follow any posted COVID-19 guidelines at any public sites where you monitor and agree not to monitor if the site isn’t open for public use
  • File weekly reports via an online form after meeting the above protocols

The 2020 reporting season runs from the week of June 28 through mid-fall. LCC is also happy to train people who aren't able to provide weekly reports but are interested in increasing their understanding of lake conditions.
