Grant of up to $50,000 to a New York, Vermont, or Quebec nonprofit organization, IHE, or for-profit to develop a marketing campaign that will promote environmental protection in eligible locations. Funding is intended to prepare social marketing materials that will encourage landowners and communities in the Lake Champlain Basin to protect water quality, aquatic/riparian habitat, and increase flood resiliency.
The Stream Wise Award Program is a campaign that will educate and incentivize communities in the Lake Champlain Basin to engage in activities applicable to the Clean Water Goal of the LCBP’s long-term management plan.
The goal of establishing a basin-wide Stream Wise Award Program is to market a consistent message and brand. This will encourage riparian landowners within the basin to support good stewardship of streams and rivers through the installation, maintenance, and enhancement of recommended best management practices for riparian corridors on their lands.
This awards program, inspired by VTDEC’s Lake Wise Program, will harness social science research that has demonstrated that people are most influenced by their neighbors. Properties that meet certain riparian corridor management conditions will earn a Stream Wise Award. These “model” properties are intended to inspire other landowners to adopt Stream Wise practices to earn the Stream Wise recognition and help protect their shared rivers and streams.
The Stream Wise Award Program will work cooperatively with existing vegetated stream buffer programs within the Lake Champlain basin. This includes New York State’s Trees for Tribs program and the Trees for Streams programs located in Vermont. The program will take into consideration existing jurisdictional standards and regulations to help understand the current capacity of local organizations to run successful programs.
The program is intended to be a collaborative effort among federal, state, provincial, municipal, and local organizations across the Lake Champlain Basin.
