Lake Champlain Sea Grant envisions a future in which Basin communities anticipate and enable change for long-term ecosystem health and sustainable economic development. The mission of Lake Champlain Sea Grant is to develop and share science-based knowledge to benefit the environment and economies of the Lake Champlain Basin.
A cooperative program of the University of Vermont and SUNY Plattsburgh, Lake Champlain Sea Grant is a part of a national network of 35 projects and programs at coastal and Great Lakes colleges, coordinated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The Lake Champlain Sea Grant program was granted Institute status in 2018. Our proposal for this institute, as well as some background on the Lake Champlain Sea Grant program, can be found in this Briefing Book. Additional information can be found in our 2018-2021 Strategic Plan.
