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 Christa at (802) 262-1229.
The steadfast support of our long-time friends and gifts from our new members is vital to the work we do throughout Vermont.
This year, we had approximately 4,000 members, including 400 new members!
Thanks to members’ support, in the past three decades we have protected forests, farms, shorelines, wildlife habitat, and public trails in virtually every corner of Vermont.

Honorary and Memorial Giving: Some members like to give in honor of a living or deceased person. If you do this, we will send notification to the recipient (or survivors) telling them that you have made a gift in their name.
Weddings: Are you getting married in lovely Vermont? Would you like to commemorate the occasion in a meaningful and personal way? Several soon-to-be-wed couples have chosen to include the Vermont Land Trust in their gift registry. A wedding couple may give a gift to VLT in honor of their guests, or may ask their guests to choose philanthropy as a gift to them.
