The more than six hundred scientists and professionals at the agency are dedicated to protecting and improving the health of Vermont’s people and ecosystems and promoting the sustainable use of Vermont’s natural resources. Through our three departments – the Department of Environmental Conservation, the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation – the agency serves as a focal point for environmental protection. Please explore the web site to learn more about what we’re doing on behalf of Vermont’s environment.


Each of the Agency's three departments has its own home page, as does the Secretary's Office. We've also included links to other state and federal agencies with a presence in Vermont.

Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) administers most of the Agency's regulatory programs plus several voluntary pollution and waste reduction programs. Program areas include: air quality, environmental assistance, public facilities engineering, geology, environmental permits, environmental enforcement, solid waste, hazardous waste, surface water quality, watershed planning, stormwater management, drinking water supply.

Department of Fish and Wildlife (FWD) manages Vermont's fisheries and wildlife resources, enforces the state's hunting and fishing laws, and studies and inventories nongame wildlife species and natural communities.

Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation (FPR) operates the Vermont State Parks system, manages state forests and natural areas, and provides assistance in the areas of forestry, recreation, and conservation education.

The ANR Central Office which includes the Agency Secretary's Office, supports the departments by providing several administrative, planning, information technology, and human resource functions.
