19 Buck Rd Hanover NH 03755 USA
The Upper Valley Land Trust helps people protect the lands they care about most, including working farms, forested ridges, wildlife habitat, clean water, trails, and scenic views. By providing conservation leadership and practical assistance, UVLT helps individuals and communities secure the mixture of land uses critical to the region''s rural character and the vitality of its community life. Since 1985, UVLT has permanently protected over 400 parcels of land encompassing more than 39,000 acres. UVLT stands committed to the stewardship of these conserved lands for the benefit of present and future Upper Valley residents. UVLT is supported primarily by local contributions from individuals.
Working with landowners who choose to permanently protect the natural resources and scenic values of their land, UVLT uses legally-binding conservation agreements to restrict development while encouraging sustainable uses and wise stewardship. Some conserved lands are also open to the public for recreational enjoyment. Conservation agreements remain in effect, safeguarded by UVLT, as protected property changes hands through the years.

I have worked with the Upper Valley Land Trust for a relatively short period of time but have been impressed with the job they do for many years. Although UVLT is only about twenty years old it now ranks amongst the largest in the country in terms of acreage persevered. The amount of work that is done each year by a small dedicated staff, a very active Board of Trustees and a large number of unpaid volunteers is quite extraordinary. Careful attention is focused on every proposed and current easement to see that each is created and maintained in keeping with the highest standards individually appropriate to each piece of property.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
trails I have hiked and interaction with staff and volunteers.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
unbridled enthusiasm on the part of everyone I have met.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
always knowageable and friendly.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
continue its work on a much larger scale to reconcile the never ending tension between development and preservation.
