Volunteer Spotlight: Dan Jacobs
Dan Jacobs has donated over 25 hours of his time with the Lake Champlain Committee (LCC) since August 2011, assisting with organization mailings and member communication pieces. Jacobs, a Burlington, Vermont resident, began volunteering to help Lake Champlain, as well as expand his area network. “Summer is when I appreciate the lake the most, sailing near Converse Bay, swimming at Juniper Island and biking along the Causeway,” says Jacobs. An avid sports fan, he also enjoys college football, skiing and playing squash.
“One of the qualities that I like about Lake Champlain is that it is large enough to have distinct sections, each one having its own set of characteristics and needs,” says Jacobs. “As someone who uses Lake Champlain regularly in the warmer months, enjoys its beauty year round, and would like to see the lake be accessible for generations to come, volunteering with LCC is a natural fit.”
Volunteers are essential to LCC’s mission of protecting Lake Champlain’s health and recreational resources. From serving as Trail stewards and water quality monitors to helping out in the office and at events, volunteers play a critical role in LCC’s programs and outreach.
