World Water Day Celebration

Host: Champlain Centre

Date: March 16, 2024

The Lake Champlain Basin Program, Champlain Centre Mall, and the Champlain Basin Education Initiative invite the public to participate in a World Water Day Celebration on Saturday, March 16th beginning at 11 AM. Shoppers may view student works about local water resources and interact with more than 20 organizations that will host exhibits and hands-on activities celebrating water resources.

Mall guests will be able to explore how river systems flow and how streambanks erode during flood events through a hands-on model, dive deeper into aquatic invasive species and learn why the round goby poses a threat to our ecosystem, participate in a youth art project, complete quests on a giant watershed map of the Lake Champlain basin,  learn how to protect drinking water supplies, practice casting for fish, and more.

Regal Cinemas will screen two locally-produced films:
12:00: Meet the Scientists, produced by LCBP & Peregrine Productions
1:30 PM: Age of Humans by Dr. Curt Stager in collaboration with the Wild Center, to be followed by a Q&A
