Welcome to The Vermont River Conservancy

 

We are a statewide, water-focused, nonprofit land trust supported by people, like you, who believe that the protection of exceptional shore land is essential to the quality of life in Vermont. With your help, we can continue to protect popular swimming holes, breathtaking gorges, magnificent waterfalls, fishing and boating accesses, paddlers’ trails, wildlife corridors, watersheds and so much more. We also seek to improve Vermont communities’ flood resiliency by actively exploring new conservation approaches that convert flood-threatened private property to public open space for recreation and public access. Since 1995 financial and volunteer support have enabled us to work in cooperation with landowners to conserve 75 important sites throughout Vermont. With you as a partner, we can do even more. By contributing or volunteering, you can help us assure that Vermont will have the quality of life that we all have come to enjoy and expect.
