About the event

Stories from the Floodplain
While dinner is served, panelists from the Missisquoi River Basin Association, Franklin County Natural Resource Conservation District, and Friends of Northern Lake Champlain share experiences from Vermont flooding events.
Why Are Vermont’s Floods So Damaging?
Lake Champlain Sea Grant and the Nature Conservancy lead an interactive exploration of VT topography, climate, historic land management practices, and river science using an interactive flume table demonstration.
Strengthening Flood Resilience with Floodplain Regulations
DEC Floodplain Managers present regulations in place by FEMA and the State that help manage our floodplains and make our communities safer. NRPC leads a group work activity that explores a Franklin County model flood hazard bylaw and standards that can further strengthen a community’s flood protection.
