Mission: Land conservation and environmental education.
Programs: Land conservation - the organization continues to work on an ongoing basis to create partnerships with landowners interested in conserving their land. After completing work on a major conservation project in 2014, the land trust spent 2015, 2016 and 2017 working with several landowners on potential new conservation projects. In 2017, the south hero land trust completed the fundraising campaign for the tracy woods conservation project. The land trust continues to reach out to the community with over 400 members.
education and outreach - the south hero land trust conducts a number of educational programs including "the land, the farms and me" which partners with the local school, farmers and parents to bring local school children into closer contact with their natural and agricultural surroundings. The "south hero land trust farm initiative" seeks to improve the viability of local farms through multiple projects including the creation and distribution of the "champlain islands grown guide to agriculture"
