Lewis Creek Association Annual Party

Featuring Speaker Nina Munteanu, author of Water Is…


 

Lewis Creek Association is a non-profit conservation organization that does sustainability and conservation work in towns of the middle Lake Champlain Valley.

LCA works primarily within watershed boundaries of the LaPlatte River, Thorp Brook, Kimball Brook, Holmes Brook, McCabe's Brook, and Lewis Creek to service the watershed towns of Charlotte, Ferrisburgh, Hinesburg, Monkton, Shelburne and Starksboro.

We work with towns, governments and citizens to conserve Vermont's important landscapes and natural resources. We rely on active citizens and volunteers to collect data, make informed decisions, and implement positive change.

 
We are water. What we do to water, we do to ourselves.
— Nina Munteanu
