It’s summer in Jeffersonville, and the woodlands along the Brewster River are buzzing with cicadas. Children splash in the gorge below Vermont’s historic Grist Mill Covered Bridge. Visitors flock to the trails beyond, seeking shade and the chance to socialize, from a distance.
Wondering what we’ve been up to? The pandemic may have slowed some things down and halted others, but here at VLT we’ve been busy!

A $2 million grant from the USDA National Resources Conservation Service has been awarded to the Vermont Land Trust to help farmers implement practices that enhance the health of their soils.
Fairmont Farm conserved 201 acres of land between Route 14 and the Winooski River, and agreed to provide trail access across the recently conserved land, helping to connect a critical section of the Cross VT Trail between East Montpelier and Marshfield. The farm is also working with VLT and other conservation partners to protect and restore a half-mile stretch of the Winooski River in Marshfield.
