Vermont shares two large lakes with Quebec. And while the focus of the health of Lake Champlain has long been a major area of concern, there is a group who has spent years worrying about the well being of Lake Memphremagog.
Memphremagog Conservation has been patrolling the lake for 46 years. The non-profit organization has 1,200 members, a volunteer board and three paid patrollers who spend the summer on the lake.
Catherine Roy is a member of the organization. She spoke with VPR about their work and the findings.
