Sister Lakes

Lake Champlain from Bike PathBurlington has also actively participated in regional "sister lake" relationships. These have involved lake biologists and other technical experts, as well as municipal officials from our Lake Champlain Region and communities surrounding Lake Ohrid, on the border of Macedonia and Albania, and Lake Toba in Indonesia. Through these programs, we have exchanged "best practices" for lake management, particularly the management of resources involving multiple political jurisdictions. The Lake Champlain experience inspired the creation of Lakenet, a global network of more than 900 people and organizations in some 90 countries working for the conservation and sustainable management of lakes. 1876
