As summer rolls to a close, we look at the health of our lakes, and the shoreland that bounds them. What are the biggest risks facing our lake waters, and are we doing enough to protect our shores?

  • Tom O'Brien - President of NH LAKES.
  • Jeff Schloss - Natural Resources Program Team Leader at the UNH Cooperative Extension, and co-author of "Landscaping at the Water's Edge: An Ecological Approach."
  • Midge Eliassen - Resident of Sunapee and longtime citizen scientist and steward of the lake. She's been collecting samples from the lake for twelve years.
