VRC Partners with NH Land Trust to Conserve Farm & Islands

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

The Vermont River Conservancy was thrilled to partner with the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust and landowner Richard Johnson to protect a farm on an island in the Connecticut River. The project insures that this land will be forever protected from development, and it can continue to be a working farm as it has been for generations. Additionally, this property offers an ideal spot for a campsite for paddlers along the CT River who wish to complete a multi-day trip, thereby further extending the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail. Please check out this NHPR story for more information on this exciting partnership: http://nhpr.org/post/after-six-generations-making-sure-family-farm-stays-farm-forever.
