Lake Wise Awards
Congratulations to Anne Ford and Art Curcillo for winning the Vt DEC’s Lake Wise Award! It is no easy feat to win. The goal of Lake Wise is to establish a new normal, a new culture of lakeshore landscaping that is proven to help protect the lake. A property that earns the Lake Wise Award will represent a “model” shoreland property. The Lake Wise Award certifies a property is well managed, using shoreland Best Management Practices, and is maintained to care for the lake. LCCD partners with the VT DEC Lake Wise Program to help landowners receive technical assistance for fixing erosion, dirty runoff problems, and diminished shoreland vegetation which will protect lake quality and wildlife habitat. Lake Wise awards can be displayed on shoreline or smaller awards can be attached to a landowners mailbox. The idea is to inspire other landowners to make improvements on their land as well. In the end it’s a win-win for all the residents on the lake who will see improvements in water quality and view a beautiful naturally established shoreline.
