Ninety-seven acres along the Lemon Fair River have been protected for water quality and wildlife habitat, and 160 acres of adjacent farmland have been conserved by Monument Farms.
The Peter A. Krusch Nature Preserve will feature nature trails that invite exploration. A highlight will be a path to the Cambridge Pines State Forest—one of Vermont’s few examples of old forest, a spectacular and awe-inspiring place that’s not easy to access.
VLT has raised $15 million to put 200 new farmers on the land over the next decade. As part of this effort, VLT is leasing land in Isle La Motte to Krista Scruggs for her farm business.
