Thanks to the lake lovers who joined the Rozalia Project, LCC and other lake partners in a September cleanup of the Burlington waterfront! The afternoon effort removed 1,500 items and 408 pounds of debris along a half mile of shoreline. Record spring flooding and Tropical Storm Irene flushed monumental amounts of debris into Lake Champlain this spring and summer. Help out with ongoing cleanup needs on October 22 by joining us at the Champlain Islands Cleanup, Vermont Clean Up Day or organizing a shoreline project of your own. If you have a chance, send us an update and pictures of your work. Thanks for all you do to protect this special place.
