About Us


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

Since 1987, SLT has conserved over 3,500 acres of land in Stowe, Waterbury and Morrisville. We work with our community and willing landowners to protect important landscapes in Stowe and the surrounding area.  We strive to maintain a positive working relationship with our conservation landowners to ensure the conservation values they initially sought to protect are maintained in perpetuity. We own and manage five properties for public recreation and hold 32 conservation easements with a variety of landowners including private individuals, the Town of Stowe and the State of Vermont. In 2015, we adopted an ambitious Strategic Plan that outlines our approach to conservation, stewardship and the overall sustainability of our organization.

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.
