Lake Champlain Land Trust


Mission Statement

The mission of the Lake Champlain Land Trust is to save the scenic beauty, natural communities, and recreational amenities of Lake Champlain by permanently preserving significant islands, shoreline areas, and natural communities in the Champlain Region.


The Lake Champlain Land Trust has been working with you and your community, in partnership with colleagues, to conserve the wildlife habitats, shore lands, islands, parks, farms, forests, and natural areas of Lake Champlain since 1978.  The Lake Champlain Land Trust has conserved over 10,000 acres, 17 islands, and 21 miles of lake and river shoreline in the Lake Champlain region—including more than 25 public access areas.  The Lake Champlain Land Trust is supported by a broad coalition of individuals, families, and businesses, who agree that the acquisition, protection, and stewardship of the Lake’s natural resources and water quality is essential if we are to retain the quality of life that makes the Lake Champlain region so attractive.

Program Details

The Lake Champlain Land Trust works on both sides of Lake Champlain, in Vermont and New York.
We conserve a variety of landscapes, including islands, lakeshore, wetlands, forests, river shore, and farmland.  Not only do we conserve land surrounding Lake Champlain, but we also conserve land further from the lake that may have a significant impact on the health of Lake Champlain (such as rivers, streams, and wetlands).
If you have questions about conserving your land, please feel free to contact Chris Boget, Executive Director, at 802-862-4150 x 1 or📷.
