Conservation Alliance in Bolton Valley, Vermont
Will Ross, March 4, 2015
Early in 2012, The Conservation Alliance funded the Vermont Land Trust in their Bolton Valley Conservation Campaign. Aimed at protecting 1,200 acres of the Bolton Valley Nordic and Backcountry property, the campaign came as a response to the possibility of the private sale of the land to developers. In March 2013, the Alliance funded a further sum, bringing their contribution to $85,000. The second grant means that the Campaign reaches its $1.85 million fundraising goal, so preserving critical habitat for wildlife and recreational opportunities for thousands of residents in northern Vermont.
