VMC Partners

In 1996, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was created between the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, the University of Vermont, and the USDA Forest Service. The partners agreed to work together to operate the VMC to better coordinate and conducts long-term natural resource monitoring and research within Mount Mansfield State Forest, the Lye Brook Wilderness Area of the Green Mountain National Forest (GMNF) and other relevant areas in Vermont.

The majority of VMC operations are handled by staff affiliated with The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont, the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation in the VT Agency of Natural Resources, and the USDA Forest Service Green Mountain National Forest.
