About the Lake St. Catherine Conservation Fund

For the sake of the lake…

The LSCCF is an organization dedicated to the renewal of the Lake St. Catherine Lake system in the towns of Wells and Poultney, Vermont.

We welcome your interest and encourage your participation in our cause.  Please browse around our web site and consider becoming a member.  We believe that we can bring about a bright and lasting future of generations to come.

The Lake Saint Catherine Conservation Fund was formed in 2009 and is an organization dedicated to securing the future of the Lake Saint Catherine system.

The Lake system faces several problems including accelerating eutrophication that now makes portions of the lake unavailable for the accustomed uses we have enjoyed in the past.

The Conservation Fund is a group of local citizens and part-time residents organized to encourage improvement in the Lake system through public awareness (including public meetings), lake quality monitoring, the implementation of a lake use strategy, and the initiation of projects. We are currently working with the State of Vermont (ANR), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Darrin Freshwater Research Institute, the Town of Wells, the Lake St. Catherine Association, and all interested parties.

Further, we are currently investigating all ecologically sound methods of improving the quality of the lake, and soliciting analyses and recommendations from experts in the area of lake management.
