Despite the pandemic 2020 was a productive year for UVLT volunteers. From easement monitoring, to the Brookmead Food Pantry Garden, to creating trail networks and building bridges – UVLT volunteers were busy this field season.
UVLT volunteers contributed over 1,500 hours to conservation and stewardship in the Upper Valley! More than 200 individuals over the course of the last twelve months put in a lot of time and effort to provide local produce to those in need, maintain and improve our conservation areas for public use, and monitor our over 500 easements. We couldn’t have done it without their help! The impact that our volunteers had this year goes way beyond the over 1,500 volunteer hours they worked; our volunteers have fed families, improved important outdoor spaces, and promoted conservation in the Upper Valley.
