Agency of Natural Resources, Vermont

Data Center Description
The mission of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources is "To
protect, sustain, and enhance Vermont's natural resources, for
the benefit of this and future generations." To meet this
mission, the Agency's 550 employees work across Vermont to
protect and enhance our state's air, water, forest, and other
natural resources.

Vermonters have a long and rich tradition of taking
responsibility for many matters within their communities. Some
issues, however, are best addressed at the state level. A river,
for instance, flows through many towns. Furthermore, the state
is the obvious level of government to administer many federally
mandated programs.
