The Volunteer Greeter Program was initiated in 2008 with more than two dozen LMPA members and friends manning the boat access to help educate boaters about invasive species and provide courtesy boat inspections to prevent new invasives such as Eurasian Water Milfoil from entering our Lake. The milfoil management efforts at Lake Morey are considered a model in Vermont and throughout the northeast.
Additionally, the Town of Fairlee hires a greeter to work at the boat launch on weekends to check boats as they enter and exit the water. Beginning with the 2016 season, we have increased the number of paid Greeters, providing coverage at the busiest times. Funding for this year’s effort comes from the VT Agency of Natural Resources, a grant from The Lake Morey Foundation, and funding from our Association.
We appreciate this team approach, which substantially increases the number of hours that the boat launch is manned for boat inspections and boater education.
Volunteer Greeters are needed and welcome – please email firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
