LGLC Receives Grant from Lake Champlain Basin Program

lglc logoThe Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has been awarded $4,000 from the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s Local Implementation Grant Program, in cooperation with the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission.

The grant has allowed the LGLC to purchase field and office equipment and supports public educational programs.

One of the items purchased was a Trimble Tablet for field staff to utilize when walking properties, mapping boundary lines and significant natural features, and translating information into accurate maps for office and public use. The tablet will also be useful in the LGLC’s efforts to inventory and monitor its properties for invasive species, both terrestrial plants and pests, such as the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.

The Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) awarded a total of $1,334,951 in 90 grants this year to communities and organizations in Vermont and New York that are implementing projects to improve the future of the Lake Champlain watershed. Funding for these grants originates through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and the National Park Service.
