MISSION

The Upper Valley Land Trust helps people conserve land in 45 New Hampshire and Vermont towns. As a community-based land conservancy, UVLT chooses conservation methods and tools that engage and benefit area residents and inform and inspire participation in the stewardship of land resources.We invite you to learn about our work, explore some of the special places we have conserved, and join the volunteers and supporters who make our work possible.

Happy 2016!

As we tally up the first six months of fiscal year 2016, we are deeply grateful for the contributions of hundreds of volunteers and donors who have joined in the effort to conserve and steward the Upper Valley’s most special places. If you have helped monitor conserved lands, clear and mark trails, open and close riverfront campsites; if you have assisted with field trips, shared your knowledge of local flora and fauna, posted your photos of conserved lands; if you have mailed a gift or donated online… please know what a difference you make. In the past six months we’ve stewarded thousands of acres, welcomed families to discover nature on our lands, hosted paddlers and hikers and added 3,300 more acres of conserved land. Our successes together make the Upper Valley a healthier, more beautiful and more hopeful place. Happy 2016!
