VNRC works on collaborative solutions to existing and potential environmental issues. I trust them to speak out and up for policies, rules and legislation that protect all of Vermont’s natural resources and promote healthy communities of people, animal life, forests, and waterways.
Gianna Petito
District Manager, Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District
I'm so impressed with how VNRC is championing dam removals across the state. Their depth of technical knowledge and ability to foster partnerships make them a great advocate for aquatic habitat connectivity and flood resilience.
Amy Seidl
Board member, author, and educator
VNRC has a long history of convening Vermonters who care about environmental protection. I deeply appreciate that VNRC leverages this role to gain greater support for environmental stewardship and the human health and well-being that is intimately tied to it.
