Lake St. Catherine
The Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds (FOVLAP) is one of the oldest nonprofit stakeholders to promote Vermont water quality. From its inception in 1972 and evolution into a statewide organization in 2001, FOVLAP remains dedicated to fostering environmental quality standards and preserving Vermont lakes, ponds, watersheds, and aquatic ecosystems.
Invasive species are “non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem and are likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.
We base our advocacy work upon the currently accepted science, expert consensus, and policies that support our mission. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3), FOVLAP does not engage in paid lobbying.
Maintaining healthy shorelands is one of the best ways to ensure a healthy lake. Using Best Management Practices (BMPs) around the lake can contribute to a healthier lake.
