Canute Dalmasse Legacy Fund

Such a Great Man – His Legacy will Continue

Canute Dalmasse was a talented administrator in Vermont state government, where he served for 36 years in positions such as Commissioner of Environmental Conservation and Deputy Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources.  With his deep caring and natural diplomacy, he made significant and long lasting improvements to the protection of our natural environment.  He had a special concern for Vermont’s rivers, and his dedication to the environment was inspirational to many.  The Vermont River Conservancy is honored to be designated by his family to continue his legacy of respect and care for our landscape by creating a legacy fund in his name.

The Canute Dalmasse Legacy Fund accepts contributions in his honor to support projects that protect and conserve outstanding lands along our waters.

Contributions to the Fund have been a catalyst to expanding the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail, a series of permanent access points and campsites spanning from the river’s headwaters south to the Massachusetts border. The Legacy Fund has also helped establish a 7.3 acre park on the Missisquoi River in Enosburg Falls, providing anglers and paddlers 1,500 feet of permanent access to trophy trout waters.

There are many more opportunities throughout Vermont to continue Canute’s legacy.

To further Canute’s legacy of protecting Vermont’s landscape, please consider a donation to the Canute Dalmasse Legacy Fund.  In consultation with Canute’s family, we will apply your gift when truly outstanding conservation opportunities arise.  They will be added to the list below.
