Annual Meeting for Marina Owners and Operators

Each year, in late March or early April, the Vermont Boat and Marine Association, Lake Champlain Basin Program, Lake Champlain Sea Grant and UVM Extension host an annual meeting of marina owners and operators. The event gives marina owners and operators a chance to reconnect with one another after the winter and to learn about relevant policies, funding opportunities, and research and outreach activities.

Lake Champlain Sea Grant also offered an oil spill prevention and response training for marina owners and operators in spring 2019. Read more about this training event.
