STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

""The Vermont Land Trust family understands that our future success will depend not only on protecting Vermont's physical landscape but on a broader range of values including strengthening our local economies, protecting ecologically significant resources, serving all Vermonters, and listening to communities to discover what is important to them, where is there a need for conservation, and where is there room for growth?  We must continue to innovate, accept challenges and take risks.  The reward is the continued vibrancy of our state and the people who live here."

 -Gil Livingston, President"
