Pat Berry Appointed Vermont’s New Fish and Wildlife Commissioner.
Berry of Middlebury will likely be Vermont’s new fish and wildlife commissioner after confirmation in the Legislature. Berry will replace Wayne Laroche, who has held the position for eight years.
Rumor says that he was a fishing guide in Montana and is also a hunter. Most recently, he led Vermont Law School’s fundraising efforts, reaching out to government agencies, congressional delegation and foundations. He has also worked Middlebury College and the Vermont Natural Resources Council.
