Secretary to Host Conversation on Invasive Species and Other Environmental Topics November 27


November 14, 2018

MONTPELIER, Vt. - Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Julie Moore will host a gathering in Montpelier to discuss a variety of environmental topics on Tuesday, November 27th. The conversation will start with a discussion on invasive species in Vermont. Secretary Moore will then open the floor to the public, inviting them to share thoughts, ideas, questions and concerns about Vermont’s natural world – from land and water to plants and wildlife. 

"I started hosting these community meetings last February because I wanted to open my office door to Vermonters,” said Secretary Moore. “These meetings are a great way for me to hear directly from a wide range of people on a variety of topics – from drought management to water quality projects.”

Invasive Plant Coordinator Elizabeth Spinney will kick off the discussion by offering practical ways individuals and communities can fight invasive species. Aquatic Invasive Species Management Coordinator Josh Mulhollem will then highlight the State’s work with municipalities in the development of management plans for invasive aquatic vegetation. While the meeting will begin with a conversation on invasive species, it will not be limited to this topic.

The gathering will be held in the Dewey Building at 1 National Life Drive in Montpelier on November 27th at 4pm. For those not able to make it in person, a Facebook Live stream will be available at
