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.
