About Us

Mission

Stowe Land Trust is dedicated to the conservation of scenic, recreational, and productive farm and forest lands for the benefit of the greater Stowe community.

Who We Are

SLT is a local, member-supported, non-profit 501(c)(3) land conservation organization operating in Stowe, Vermont. An all volunteer Board of Directors representing a broad cross-section of the community provides guidance for the organization. SLT's staff work out of an office in the Stowe Village at 6 Sunset Street. Typically the office is open Monday - Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.   

What We Do

Stowe Land Trust has conserved over 4,300 acres of land in since 1987--protecting spectacular viewsheds, extensive trail networks, and the working farms and forests that are important to the Stowe area community.  We have also collaborated with partners to conserve an additional 2,200 acres in the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor and along the Worcester Range. In 2018, we adopted an ambitious Strategic Plan that outlines our approach to conservation, stewardship, and the overall sustainability of our organization. This important work has been sustained primarily by generous contributions from individuals. Thank you for your support!

The Difference We Make

Conserved lands in Stowe and the surrounding area are the snapshots visitors bring home from their vacation – the reason why so many people choose to visit Stowe, or make it their home. These lands have been permanently protected because of the benefits they bring to our community - high quality recreation, scenic views, a rural working landscape, and a local economy supported by the area's natural resources.
