Looking out from the lake’s Burlington waterfront is an impressive local hub for science education called ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain. In a world where exciting habitats often feel far away and exotic, ECHO— which stands for Ecology, Culture, History, and Opportunities — stands out for its focus on celebrating and preserving local ecology.

“People are increasingly removed from their backyard.” says Nina Ridhibhinyo, ECHO’s director of program and strategy, “just as Bengal tigers need to be protected, so do native species.”
