Our members are a diverse, creative bunch, solidly committed to land conservation in Vermont. We find them wildly interesting and thought you might too.

Marsha Drake of Williston, is a jewelry designer and for five years has chosen to give a percentage of the sales from her business, Marsha Drake Jewelry, to the Vermont Land Trust.

Marsha says: "Having grown up in Vermont, I'm pleased to give to an organization that is working with landowners and farmers to help keep this state a beautiful place to bring up my own children. Vermont is well known for its open pasture land and lush green forests. I thank Vermont Land Trust for helping to keep our state known for these things."

We love hearing from our members and sharing interesting stories. Let us know if there is someone you think we should feature for their conservation efforts with VLT. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at (802) 262-1229.
