Mission: The putney mountain association believes there is a vital link between human beings and the natural environment. Our primary objectives are to strengthen that link by preserving undeveloped land on windmill ridge in southeastern vermont for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations and to protect the natural habitat and wildlife corridor of the area.
Programs: Mounted a successful major fundraising campaign to acquire a significant 144 acre tract of land which anchors the southern portion of the windmill hill nature reserve and trail, the acquisition also linked putney mountain lands with the silvio o. Conte national fish and wildlife refuge resulting in 500 acres of contiguous conserved land.
stewardship of 395 acres open to the public for hiking and nature viewing including the putney mountain hawk watch on the summit. Stewardship includes payment of all related property tax and insurance.
education and outreach to members and the public through printing of our biannual newsletter and offering lectures and nature walks led by those knowledgable in various fields.
