The Greensboro Land Trust was founded in 1992 by a group of Greensboro residents, permanent and seasonal, who were concerned that development should proceed along lines that would preserve the town’s rural character, protecting farms, forestland and wildlife habitat. GLT is a private nonprofit land conservation organization supported by its membership and governed by a volunteer board of trustees. We are not connected with either local or state government.
GLT operates primarily by accepting development rights on real estate, also known as conservation easements, either for its own account or in support of easement purchases by a related organization such as the Vermont Land Trust (VLT). GLT’s policy is to promote conservation other than by acquiring title to land, with all the future burdens that would entail. Easements may be donated or purchased, or acquired through “bargain sales” where the grantor donates a portion of the easement’s appraised value and GLT pays the remaining value.
Protect and enhance the natural and human resources of Greensboro in order to promote the well-being of present and future generations. (1st of 6 objectives in bylaws)
