The Richmond (Vermont) Land Trust was organized in 1987 by citizens of Richmond, Vermont, who were concerned that their community might go the way so many other towns have gone and lose its rural character, natural resources, scenic beauty and unique spirit. Richmond’s location in one of Vermont’s fastest growing, most populated areas puts its farms, river banks, woodlands and recreational areas at special risk. By providing local landowners with sound alternatives to “making asphalt the last crop,” the Richmond Land Trust helps assure that as Richmond grows, its working landscape, natural areas and historic sites will be protected for the benefit of generations to come.
To preserve the rural character and quality of life in Richmond, Vermont, and its surrounding communities through land conservation, historic preservation, land stewardship, and community service and education.
