Conservation Can’t Wait

Check out this new video put together by the Vermont Land Trust!

UVLT and its partners, including the Vermont Land Trust, VHCB and the Nature Conservancy have teamed up to demonstrate the importance of conservation to the state of Vermont. State funding for the upcoming fiscal year’s conservation work in Vermont may be frozen, if Governor Douglas’s proposed 2009 budget is passed. In addition, state funding for LCHIP in New Hampshire is also at risk right now.

Ways to demonstrate your support of conservation include:

Writing letters to the editors of your local papers

Writing and/or calling your state legislators

For more information about the Vermont campaign to save state conservation funding, see the Conservation Can’t Wait brochure, or visit the Vermont Land Trust’s webpage: Also see the list of UVLT properties that have been conserved with support from VHCB and the handout we used for legislative day.

Here’s a recent story from the Burlington Free Press: “Housing and Conservation Cuts Challenged.”
