The Vermont Land Trust (VLT) is a member-supported, nonprofit land conservation organization operating five regional offices throughout the state. Since 1977, VLT has permanently conserved more than 1,800 parcels of land covering 540,000 acres, or nearly nine percent of the private, undeveloped land in the state. The conserved land includes more than 800 working farms, hundreds of thousands of acres of productive forestland, and numerous parcels of community land. VLT provides technical and legal assistance to individuals, communities and local land trusts to help them achieve their conservation objectives.
