Over 130 volunteers, from schools, area businesses, youth conservation programs, and local communities, joined VLT to plant 3,000+ trees in wetlands, along streams, and in prime songbird habitat on farms in Chittenden County.

The Power of Dirt

Good dirt can mean productive farms and a healthier environment. Farmers understand the benefits of improving their soil, but it often needs a long-term financial investment.

Banking on Clean Water

Since 2016 farmers and conservation organizations have protected 290 acres of land along the Upper Missisquoi River, which drains into Lake Champlain.

Deer exclosures, fences that keep deer out, can show how too many deer prevent new trees from growing in our woods. VLT is partnering with the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, and UVM Extension to build exclosures on community forests across Vermont.
