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.

Grants Coordinator, Clean Water Initiative Program at the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation
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
