May 12, 2009 — This summer, Lake Champlain will be ringed with events - in New York, Vermont and Quebec. Towns along the shore will be celebrating the four hundredth anniversary of the arrival of French Explorer Samuel de Champlain. Champlain was the first European to reach the lake in 1609. Organizers hope to do more this summer than just throw a big party. Historians, writers and archeologists see the Lake Champlain Quadricentennial as a way to re-introduce what they see as a neglected landscape. Brian Mann has our story.
