Projects

  1. Arnold Conservation

    Nancy Arnold plans to donate to the Vermont Land Trust a conservation easement on 112 acres of her land west of Norford Lake Road. This property is part of the state of Vermont’s highest priority contiguous forest area in Norwich and it protects water quality along a long segment of Avery Brook, a tributary of the Ompompanoosuc River. The land also serves as a wildlife corridor of particular value due to its calcium-rich bedrock that supports diverse plant life and its variety of landforms at mid to upper elevations.
