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.

LYME HILL BIOBLITZ

We’ve launched a year-long initiative to collect information about the biodiversity our Lyme Hill Conservation Area using a smart phone app called iNaturalist.On June 10th, 16 volunteers joined us for three hours and recorded nearly 700 observations of 240 different species!

We’ll use biodiversity data to inform our management activities on the property. Anyone can help UVLT learn more by downloading the iNaturalist app, and making observations when you visit Lyme Hill — take photos, or sound recordings, and upload them to iNaturalist.

To see what we’ve found so far, visit our Lyme Hill Bioblitz project. Also, keep an eye on UVLTs calendar of events, as we’ll plan to run more group bioblitz days over the coming months. If you’d like to connect with UVLT to volunteer your time to collect data at Lyme Hill, and would like some training on using iNaturalist, email contactus@uvlt.org
