ECHO’S ANNUAL PASS MATCHING GIFT: MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT

Available now through January 11, 2009

BURLINGTON, Vt —This season may be a difficult one for many families going through tight financial times. One way to keep spirits bright — ECHO’s Annual Pass Matching Gift program. From now until January 11, 2009, whenever you purchase or renew an Annual Pass to ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, ECHO will give an Annual Pass to a low-income neighbor and help make their holiday season — and the new year — that much better.

The Annual Pass Matching Gift is an ECHO’s Open Door community access program, made possible through partnerships with social service agencies, an EPA matching grant, Comcast sponsorship, and individual donations. “Last year over 1,200 passes were donated through the program,” says Kate Villa, ECHO’s Director of Development. “You can bring a lot of joy, and a great cultural experience on Lake Champlain, to those who might not otherwise be able to afford it.”

An Annual Pass to ECHO is a gift to the community, and a green gift as well, supporting ECHO’s mission to inspire the stewardship of the Lake Champlain Basin — all for only $27 per adult; $24 per senior or college student; and $18 for a child. Besides unlimited admission, year-round, Annual Pass Holders also receive free admission to over 280 other science centers around the country. To purchase an ECHO Annual Pass Matching Gift, call 1-877-324-6386; or go to echovermont.org.

ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center is located at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, on Vermont’s Burlington Waterfront. ECHO features 70 live species, over 100 interactive experiences, seasonal changing exhibits and events — all exploring the Ecology, Culture, History, and Opportunity for stewardship of the Lake Champlain Basin. The 2.2 acre Leahy Center environmental campus is also highlighted by the Lake Champlain Basin Program Resource Room, UVM’s Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Laboratory, Lake Champlain Navy Memorial, ECHO’s Eclectic Gift Shop, and green-themed Think! Café. Open year-round, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve & Day. Admission is $7-$9.50; children under 3 and K-12 classroom teachers with credential ID are free. For more information visit echovermont.org, call 1-877-ECHOFUN, or write to ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, One College Street, Burlington, VT 05401.
