Environmental Protection Division attorneys visit two classes at Hartford Area Career and Technical Center’s Natural Resources Program

April 11, 2018

Assistant Attorneys General from the Attorney General’s Environmental Protection Division taught two classes for the Natural Resources Program at the Hartford Area Career and Technical Center (HACTC) on Wednesday, April 11th.

The Natural Resources Program at HACTC has a mission of exposing students to outdoor-related careers.  The six main areas of its curriculum are forestry, natural history, diversified agriculture, horticulture, water and soils.

The Environmental Protection Division attorneys spoke to classes of juniors and seniors in the Natural Resources Program about how the State of Vermont enforces its environmental laws, the role of the Attorney General, and how persons with careers in natural resources could fit into enforcement as witnesses, experts, agency staff, parties, and more.

The Division attorneys were very impressed with the students in both classes.  The students were engaged, asked great questions, and knew a lot about the subjects they are studying.

Thanks for having us down and we look forward to doing it again next year!
