About Us

images/Misc/Map.jpgThe 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 Agreements with partners on sea lamprey control to restore fisheries and to restore aquatic, wetland, and riparian habitats in the Lake Champlain, Connecticut River, and Hudson River watersheds. Cooperators include the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, The Nature Conservancy, New York Department of Environmental Conservation, recreational anglers, farmers, and other landowners. These restoration efforts improve fish and wildlife habitat through the establishment of healthy streams and riparian buffers, assisting local farmers with improved land management, and providing important water quality benefits.
