The Lake Champlain Fish and Wildlife Resources Office was established for fish
and wildlife resource restoration, development and conservation in
accordance with the provisions of the Lake Champlain Special Designation
Act of 1990 and the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Lake Champlain Basin
Program Act of 2002.
The Lake Champlain Office works in Vermont and New York through Cooperative

Connecticut River, and Hudson River watersheds. Cooperators
of Agriculture, Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Vermont Agency of Natural
Resources, The Nature Conservancy, New York Department of Environmental Conservation,

improve fish and wildlife habitat through the establishment of healthy streams
riparian buffers, assisting
local farmers with improved land management,
and providing important water quality benefits.
