Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Julie Moore Invites the Public to Discuss Key Environmental Issues

 

Vermont’s iconic landscape, including its mountains, woods, water, and wildlife, are some of the many reasons people choose to call the Green Mountain State home. This spring, Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Julie Moore invites the public to join her for a series of conversations about Vermont’s land and water.

“I come to work every day ready to protect, sustain and restore the health and beauty of these natural resources. As Secretary, my goal is to look out for Vermont’s special places, to do right by the land for both this and future generations,” said Secretary Moore. “I’m inviting the public to join me by attending one, two or all three community forums to discuss current environmental challenges and talk about crafting a better Vermont together.”

One year ago, Secretary Moore hosted a listening tour, traveling to towns across the state to hear directly from Vermonters about a range of natural resource issues. This year, Secretary Moore encourages the public to come to an upcoming community forum to participate in deeper conversations about key environmental issues.

The community forums will look at specific topics that are top-of-mind for many Vermonters right now including clean water, the long-range management of state lands, and the health of Vermont’s moose herd. The first meeting, focused on clean water, will be held on February 27th from 4:00-5:00 PM in Montpelier. For anyone who is not able to join in person, a Skype connection will be available. The full schedule is listed below.
