Review for Upper Valley Land Trust, Inc., Hanover, NH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The UVLT has an incredible, creative staff that is helping individuals and communities preserve the wonderful farmlands, waterways and animal habitats that make our region such a special place to live and visit. A recent example is the conservation of a wetlands area which was being used by several nearby schools for nature studies but was up for sale to be developed - the UVLT folks persevered in arranging part of the funds to acquire the land - and their determination sparked a community response that raised the remainder, part of which was a heartwarming Christmas activity by the students, who asked their parents to give their gift to the conservation effort so they and the students who followed could continue to learn and enjoy the many aspects of the wetland. With the power of learning outside the classroom being increasingly recognized, the benefits of this effort are important and lasting!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

interacting with good people who are all committed to helping achieve the conservation and respectful use of our special environment.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

absolutely the best! Jeanie McIntyre, the President, must have 36 hours in her days for all she accomplishes. Her colleagues are equally talented, dedicated and a joy for all the volunteers. And the volunteers, from all backgrounds, are totally determined

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

conserve the entire region with projects in every community
