Upper Valley Land Trust
The Upper Valley Land Trust is a non-profit organization supported by over 1,000 members who share the belief that conserving our region’s rural landscapes and wild places is essential to maintaining the health and vitality of our communities and the special quality of life the Upper Valley offers.

Responding to local conservation priorities, UVLT works with individuals and communities to permanently protect land and water resources in 40 Vermont and New Hampshire towns in the Upper Valley region.

UVLT uses voluntary, legally binding agreements known as conservation easements to permanently protect specific parcels of land by restricting development and other activities that may degrade natural resources. Individuals who choose to donate or sell a conservation easement to UVLT work with our staff to ensure that the restrictions meet their goals and are appropriate to unique characteristics of their property. The land remains in private ownership, and the restrictions remain in force as it is transferred from one owner to another. With each parcel conserved, UVLT accepts a stewardship obligation to defend the terms of the easement in perpetuity.
