Vermont Land Trust

Vermont Land Trust  is a member-supported, nonprofit 501(c)(3) land conservation organization operating five regional offices throughout the state, we provide technical and legal assistance to individuals, communities, and local land trusts to help them achieve their conservation objectives. We also have an ongoing stewardship relationship with landowners to ensure that conservation goals are upheld in perpetuity.

Vermont Land Trust exists so that current and future generations are deeply connected to the land and benefit from its deliberate protection and responsible stewardship. Specifically,

  • Working farms, forests, community lands, and associated natural systems are conserved, and contribute to the cultural, economic, and ecological vitality of local communities.
  • Land is accessible to the public, and working landscapes are affordable and available.
  • Land conservation and stewardship manifest an understanding of the changing nature of environmental, economic, and societal conditions.
  • Land stewardship reflects responsible and balanced care for the ecological integrity, cultural heritage, and economic productivity of conserved properties.
