ECHO at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain

Map
1 College St., Burlington, VT 05401, United States

As part of the revitalization of Burlington’s waterfront, the city opened the ECHO Center in 2003 to celebrate, preserve, and promote Lake Champlain. Across two glass-walled floors, there are dozens of exhibits on biodiversity, history, and culture, including a frog world, indigenous peoples display, and a 7,000-gallon fish tank. The fluid layout and bright colors are especially attractive to children, as are animal demonstrations by staff, the petting zoo, and the play area. Upstairs, children can utilize green screen technology as weather reporters, edit the recording, and burn it to DVD.
