Our Partners In Conservation

Partner advocacy organizations and coalitions:

New Hampshire Land Trust Coalition: supporting and advocating for land trusts in the state of New Hampshire.  Founding partner/member.

Maine Land Trust Network: supporting and advocating for land trusts in Maine, a program of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust

Land Trust Alliance: supporting land trusts nationwide.  USVLT has adopted the Land Trust Alliance’s Standards & Practices.


Our land trust neighbors and partners:

Upper Headwaters Alliance (UHA): The UHA focuses on conservation of forest land and aquatic resources within the headwaters of both the Saco River and Sebago Lake – drinking water sources for half a million people.  It is made up of USVLT and our neighbors to the east — the Western Foothills Land Trust, the Greater Lovell Land Trust, and Loon Echo Land Trust.  The Alliance’s biggest push right now is the Crooked River Initiative.

Green Mountain Conservation Group: Our neighbor to the south, with a strong focus on water quality and aquifer protection

White Mountain National Forest: Our neighbor to the north and west

Tin Mountain Conservation Center: Our environmental education partner in the greater Mount Washington Valley



Each land trust project brings a diverse array of potential funders to the table – from federal programs to local charitable foundations.  USVLT has received consistent support from these governmental programs:

NRCS , and specifically the Farm and Ranchland Protection Program

New Hampshire’s Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, or LCHIP and the state’s “Moose Plate” program

Land for Maine’s Future Program  and Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife

We receive  support from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation  (and many of their donor-advised funds),  and we hold our stewardship endowment assets at the Maine Community Foundation
