Richmond Land Trust

To preserve the rural character and quality of life in Richmond, Vermont, and its surrounding communities through land conservation, historic preservation, land stewardship, and community service and education.

 What We Do
The Richmond Land Trust is a non-profit, grass-roots organization of residents and friends of Richmond, Vermont, a town of about 4,000 people in the foothills of the Green Mountains about 15 miles from Burlington. Through voluntary agreements with landowners, we have:

Led the effort to conserve approximately 650 acres of Richmond farms, river banks, woodlands and recreation areas – important parts of the quality of life people enjoy here

Helped save the former Universalist Church and the Elementary School, historic buildings now housing the Richmond Free Library, and the Town Center and Post Office

Spearheaded a project to preserve three historic farmsteads in town, including twin “monitor” barns and 1,000 acres of surrounding agricultural and forest lands

Created canoe and fishing access points along the Winooski River

Established hiking trails through the town’s floodplain forest – one of the few remaining in Vermont
