The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) proudly announces the launch of an online training for Municipal officials. Seventeen informative videos, most around 10-minutes long, are intended to help new, and not-so-new, municipal officials learn about ANR’s work and the tools available to help communities. While trainings are tailored to municipal officials, any community member who would like to learn more about ANR’s work is invited to participate.


Training topics range from invasive species to recycling laws to dam safety. Tutorials help attendees gain proficiency in tools such as the Permit Navigator, BioFinder and the Clean Water Projects Explorer. One video even shows you how to clean a bat house. A visually engaging platform known as a StoryMap has been used to combine stunning photographs, instructional video trainings and, in one case, music to showcase a sample of what ANR has to offer.




We hope you get a chance to check-out these trainings.  Feel free to forward this information and send feedback or questions to me!


Thank you
