What does it take to remove a dam and restore a wetland? A lot of science, passion, and hard work. And some very muddy boots! Join us for a free one-hour event to learn about our recent work to remove a dam on a farm near Lake Champlain and restore a wetland. You’ll hear from an ecologist, engineer, indigenous scholar and educator, and others who are helping to improve the health of Crooked Creek and support cleaner water in Lake Champlain.
