Thank you's to:
The Lake Champlain Basin Program
has awarded the APWQCoalition a 2016 $4000 grant to continue its work around local buffer, rain garden, driveway remediation for storm water, swale projects. It has supported the organization of a shoreline snorkel swim which will educate residents on types of plants and invasives, and, notably algae, off our docks and shorelines. It supports algae tests and the inventorying of findings to chart yearly observations. It supports expansion of our newsletters to 3x yearly, upgrading of our website, the publication of Dr. Adamson's book to make a welcome packet for newcomers and some equational outreach fliers.
Thank you to Bill Mason and Walter Lender for letters of support to obtain this grant.
Thank you to Gould's Landscaping for expanding their services to include native tree and deep woody shrub planting along lake shorelines. To the right:
