Speaker: Staci Pomeroy, DEC
Thursday, April 27, 2017
11:00 AM – Noon
National Life Main Building – Winooski Room, M240

Learn how projects to protect and restore river corridors in the Lake Champlain Basin are helping to reduce this phosphorus load, and improve flood resiliency, from Staci Pomeroy, Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation River Scientist.
