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