Clark County students and residents will continue to have access to Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership’s education program for Vancouver Lake now that the county council has approved a 2½-year agreement. The council approved the contract, valued at $175,000, during its regular meeting Tuesday.

“The Experience Vancouver Lake outreach campaign engages and educates Clark County residents about the importance of Vancouver Lake through a focus on K-12 classroom learning, on-the-water experiences, volunteer stewardship activities and community forums,” Devan Rostorfer, manager of the county’s Clean Water Division, told the council.
