What are invasive species? How did they find their way into our waters and onto our shores? What can we do about them? And why does this conversation matter?

In the Lake Champlain Basin, the number of invasive species have been growing ever since the colonizing organisms made their way to the region. From crowding out native species to decreasing nutrient resources in the waterways, come learn about the effect of invasive species in our basin.

Join us in the Roost and you will have a chance to take a deeper dive into the basics of invasive species: Which invasives are present in Lake Champlain today, how they became so invasive, and why reducing their presence is top of mind for lovers of our lake and of biodiversity. Come ready to ask questions and get to the bottom of how invasive species influence our lake!
