Our members make it possible to protect the land that sustains us. With your help, we support farms that grow local food, forests, clean air and water, places to hike and ski. Learn about our recent successes.
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.
Since 2016 farmers and conservation organizations have protected 290 acres of land along the Upper Missisquoi River, which drains into Lake Champlain.
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.
VLT ecologist Allaire Diamond works closely on our wetland restoration projects. We asked her about Vermont’s wetlands and why they matter.
