CHAMP The Champlain Monster
Thousands of years ago, the entirety of the Champlain Valley remained submerged under a great saltwater sea. This was home to a great undersea creature, who roamed its waters as king.
However, as a great glacier tore through the Green Mountains, this sea drained into the Atlantic, taking most of its saltwater inhabitants with it. This prehistoric beast, to whom local Vermonters affectionately refer as "Champ", was one of the very few trapped inside.
He has been there ever since, and has become much more social than in years past. Sightings this past year are at an all time high, so get out on the lake while you can, summer is all too short! And be sure to stop by Apple Mountain for the very best Champ merchandise, for all ages!
