The Upper Valley Land Trust and the Lebanon School District have finalized a deed conserving 41 acres of land off Mascoma Street Extension and adjacent to I-89. The property includes a wetland, upland buffer and recreational trails. The School District conserved the property as part of an agreement with the NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) to mitigate the impacts of constructing the new junior high school. In addition, the City of Lebanon has agreed to improve management and install a protective berm on adjoining land it uses for winter snow storage.
If you walk by the Upper Valley Land Trust’s Gateway parcel on Main Street in Norwich, VT, and if you are very quiet, you just might hear fear coming from the invasive plant species remaining on site……and you’ll hear moans from those that have perished!
With the hyper-help of 16 employees from Hypertherm, a Hanover, NH, based manufacturing company, about 30,000 square feet of woods were cleared of non-native, invasive plants that have taken over the area and threaten the longevity of the forest. Production crews from Hypertherm used one of their two days per year of paid time off for community service to rip, pull, tug, and yank out roots, shrubs, and trees of Glossy Buckthorn, European Honeysuckle and Japanese Barberry.
The impacts of Vermont’s investment in farmland conservation were on display earlier this month when Senator John Campbell (Windsor County) toured several Upper Valley farms. Darby Bradley of the Vermont Land Trust and Nancy Everhart, Conservation Director at the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board joined UVLT staff at visits to Oak Knoll Farm in Windsor and Wellwood Orchard in Weathersfield.
It’s clear that both Oak Knoll Farm and Wellwood Orchard are significant businesses in their communities and contribute greatly to the vitality of the local and regional economy. Vermont’s investment in conservation through VHCB strengthens farm enterprises, and conserved farmland encourages long-term investment in farming.
In honor of UVLT’s 25th anniversary this fall, we are selling a new photo book! This book brings together a lively collection of photographs of area landscapes, and words from landowners, UVLT volunteers & friends. If you’re looking ahead to holiday gifts, this might be just the thing!
Call (603) 643-6626 for more information or to order yours today – each copy is only $20!
The Bradford area retains a strong farming community. There are at least six active farms in town; among these is the Burgess Farm. It is a family-owned dairy farm with over 50 milking cows and another 50 head of cattle. On Friday, October 1 the Upper Valley Land Trust (UVLT) conserved 110 acres of the Burgess Farm with funds from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board (VHCB) and the Bradford Conservation Commission (BCC). The newly conserved farmland, with nearly one mile of river frontage, contributes to a corridor of conserved lands along the Connecticut River in Bradford and Newbury.
