Volunteers are essential to our work of conserving Lake Champlain and advancing the fishing heritage.

We could not function without the countless hours donated by you, your family and your neighbors. 

Our flagship fundraiser, the LCI Father's Day Fishing Derby, is run with nearly 80 volunteers alone, and we can always benefit from more assistance.

We can utilize your valuable time in other ways as well:

Program Support

  • Help evaluate homes as watershed friendly
  • Recruiting sponsors for our events and programs
  • Educate decision-makers on issues important to the Lake Champlain angling community and others who share our appreciation of the lake
  • Assist staff in the office with data entry
  • Provide volunteer professional legal and financial counsel
  • Captain the lake's only "blue waters" boat during the boating season
  • Help motivate kids by stewarding LCI's mascot, Bobber Bob!
Event Facilitation and Mentoring
  • Delivering and picking up equipment
  • Helping children fish at the LCI Little Anglers Derby
  • Aiding at LCI Father's Day Derby weigh stations and LCI Bass Open with the registering of fish
  • Consider becoming a mentor with Fishing For Friends
