Help save the lake with a free buffer
One of the things lakeshore owners
can do protect the health of the lake is to provide a buffer garden along the
shorefront to filter harmful runoff into the lake. And thanks to a program provided by the Poultney-Mettowee
Conservation District, property owners can now have an attractive and
functional buffer garden planted for free through a program called LEAP (Lake
Education and Action Program)!
The Board of Directors of the Lake St. Catherine Conservation Fund meets monthly at the Wells Town Office. The meetings are held at 9 AM on the third Saturday of the month. The public is invited to attend monthly board meetings, and comments and suggestions are welcome. Occasionally meeting dates are changed, so watch this page for any
Our Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, July 27. This year we’ll be electing the new board members and officers as well as voting on some important changes to our by-laws. You’ll hear all about recent interactions with the Vermont Agency of Environmental Conservation and the latest information about our aeration, harvesting, and dredging activities. The meeting will be at the Wells Village School at 10 AM. Hope to see you there!
Coming soon: We will soon be posting the latest measurements showing how aeration is continuing to help decompose the sediment and make the lake deeper.
When lake issues appear that are of concern to residents and other users, we will keep you informed. Currently there are no matters that need to be reported.
