Vermont Watershed Grants Program Gained Huge Attraction
The program was very attractive and successful. The Fish and Wildlife and conservation, which were carried out by the Wildlife Department, were a big success. It was the major event in the program which used the grant. It was also developed by the Legislature and funded by the Department to hit the goal.
The grant was used for more such projects, which were basically focused on conserving the environment and wildlife. The main focus of the grant was to make people aware of the wildlife and the water conservation steps taken by the government and the Department.
