Additional, morning presentations include tactical basin planning, grant opportunities, invasive species and an overview of citizen science opportunities in Vermont. Afternoon workshops cover a variety of topics including septic systems and turtle nesting habitat.

There will be something for everyone and plenty of opportunity during the day to network with fellow lake leaders from around the state.
