VRC Conserves Public Access to the “Wild & Scenic” Missisquoi River in North Troy

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Thanks to a generous donation of land from Anne and Bruce McKay, a 2.4 acre property along the Missisquoi in North Troy, Vermont has been conserved by the Vermont River Conservancy. This property is located just below Big Falls, the highest undammed waterfall in the State of Vermont, and will provide public access to this beautiful river. The Missisquoi River and the Trout River are the first rivers in Vermont to earn the “Wild & Scenic” status. More information on this project can be found here.
