In the News: Bramhall Wilderness Preserve

The new Bramhall Wilderness Preserve has been getting some attention across Vermont!

Check out the coverage in Valley News, Mountain Times, and VT Digger!

As the first forever-wild land that has been privately protected in the Chateauguay No-Town Conservation Area, the creation of this 359-acre wilderness is a significant achievement. After several years of hard work and fundraising, the Northeast Wilderness Trust purchased this property in April 2020. The land is just south of the Appalachian Trail, and is traversed by headwaters of the Ottauquechee River that provide pristine habitat for native brook trout. Vermont Housing & Conservation Board and the Vermont River Conservancy will co-hold a forever-wild easement on the land, which will ensure its perpetual protection. We are still fundraising to secure the long-term stewardship of the land. You can help by making a donation to support the Bramhall Wilderness Preserve.
