Lake Champlain- Experience and Lessons Learned Brief (Lake Basin Management Initiative). 2005. (2.5 MB)

The Lake Champlain basin (Figure 1) is home to a diverse and significant array of natural, cultural, and recreational re-sources. Extending west into New York’s Adirondack region, east into Vermont’s Green Mountains, and north onto Québec’s fertile flatlands, the basin’s rich history of human inhabitance is interwoven with its natural features. Not long after glaciers retreated from the area over 10,000 years ago, Native Americans hunted, fished, and later farmed along the lake’s shoreline. In 1609, explorer Samuel de Champlain sailed into the lake that would later bear his name, initiating European settlement in the basin.
