Preserving Wildlands Into the Future

The mission of the Green Mountain Conservancy is to acquire and protect forest lands in southern Vermont.

Youth Empowerment Project

This summer (2021), Green Mountain Conservancy will bring local at-risk youth to the Deer Run Nature Preserve to remove invasive species from a critical wetland. They will be paid to work along with ecologists in a rich natural area and contribute to the conservation of the area. They will also be learning job skills that will serve them through their lives.

Deer Run Nature Preserve

The Green Mountain Conservancy is working with the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, the Vermont Land Trust, many other partners, and the local community to conserve over a thousand acres of woodland. The Deer Run Nature Preserve is located in Windham County, where the Vermont towns of Brookline, Dummerston, and Newfane meet. It spans both sides of the Putney Mountain Ridge and includes over 2.5 miles of West River shoreline as it curves around the southern terminus of the mountain.

Deer Run Nature Preserve is the first forest in Vermont to be recognized by the Old-Growth Forest Network! While we are not an old-growth forest yet, our conservation efforts will ensure that this forest will become one in the future.
