Lake Champlain Land Trust

The mission of the Lake Champlain Land Trust is to save the scenic beauty, natural communities, and recreational amenities of Lake Champlain by permanently preserving significant islands, shoreline areas, and natural communities in the Champlain Region.

We conserve land by permanently limiting the right to develop it and by permanently preserving the conservation value of the land. We use a legal tool called a conservation easement to accomplish this.

What Land We Conserve
We look at dozens of properties each year, but only a few meet our criteria. We only conserve properties that have high conservation value based on a series of standards. The Land Trust places a priority on conserving: islands in Lake Champlain, significant undeveloped shoreline; land with the potential for public recreation; and properties with important wildlife habitat. Most of our conservation projects contain more than one of these priorities. Land Trust staff are always willing to visit your property to gauge its conservation potential.
