Public Awareness Team

The Public Awareness Team is working on three different breakout projects: Vermont Clean Water Week, Celebrating Scared Waters, and Signage/Placards. Clean Water Week The Public Awareness Team will work with VT DEC and other partners to support and promote Vermont Clean Water Week with events and messaging. Celebrating Sacred Waters Event The Public Awareness Team will organize the second annual Celebrating Sacred Waters event. The 2017 event at Shelburne Bay Park combined science and spirituality for more than 40 participants who paddled up the LaPlatte River, rowed Longboats in the Bay and walked the bay trails. Clean Water Placards/Signs The Public Awareness Team will work with a number of partners to create placards at selected lakes, ponds and river accesses. The placards will provide information and actions Vermonters can take to ensure our water remains drinkable, swimmable and fishable.
