Vermonters will learn about Mirror Lake at Grand Isle lecture

GRAND ISLE, Vt. — Mirror Lake is coming from Lake Placid to Vermont Thursday.

Like many other regional lakes, Mirror Lake has a high concentration of chloride, much of which comes from road salt. This has affected Mirror Lake’s natural mixing process and its lake trout population. Brendan Wiltse, science and stewardship director for the Ausable River Association, has studied this change and will be present “Road Salt in Mirror Lake: How Does it Impact Lake Trout Habitat?” on Thursday at the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s office in Grand Isle, Vermont.

It’s part of the Love the Lake series, which features both natural and cultural heritage resource topics relevant to the Lake Champlain watershed. Wiltse will speak from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lake Champlain Basin Program Office and Vermont Fish and Wildlife Training Facility.
