MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The secretary of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources will be hosting a conversation with the public focused on the agency’s role in long-term, responsible stewardship of public lands.

The talk on Tuesday in Montpelier is part of an ongoing community series.

Organizers say it’s a chance for Vermonters to hear from and talk directly to secretary Julie Moore about environmental issues that are at the top of their minds.

Moore will be joined by the director of lands administration & recreation for the department of Forests, Parks and Recreation.

The agency says it manages about 475,000 acres of land, or 8 percent of Vermont’s land base.

The talk takes place in the Dewey Building at 1 National Life Drive in Montpelier from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
