Northern Rivers Land Trust

Northern Rivers Land Trust (NRLT), representing seven neighboring towns, is dedicated to protecting the natural, scenic, and working landscapes in the headwaters of the Winooski, Lamoille, and Black Rivers.

The Northern Rivers Land Trust was founded in 2006 by residents of Hardwick and six neighboring towns who were concerned that development should proceed along lines that would preserve the area's rural character, protecting farms, forestland and wildlife habitat. NRLT is a private nonprofit (501(c)3) land conservation organization supported by its membership and governed by a volunteer board of trustees. We are not connected with local or state government.

The NRLT belongs to the Land Trust Alliance of Washington, DC, which is the umbrella organization of approx. 1,500 national, regional, state and local land trusts dedicated to land conservation. Membership ranges from the global Nature Conservancy to one village organizations such as our close associate, the Greensboro Land Trust, which was founded in 1992 and now holds 13 easements on property in town.
