The mission of the Charlotte Land Trust is to conserve the natural and working lands of Charlotte for the benefit of present and future generations


The South Charlotte Farm and Viewshed Project

Your help is needed to complete conservation of 71 acres of excellent farmland on this property near the base of Mt Philo.  Conservation of the property will help a young farmer acquire the land for her first farm and will help protect the scenic views from Mt Philo and surrounding roads.

David Watts, 1945-2021

We remember with sadness our fellow board member, David Watts, who passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on January 16. David was an extremely committed and engaged board member who helped us in so many ways by sharing his legal expertise, his penchant for the outdoors and his cheerful demeanor. He and fellow board member, David Pill, annually conducted all of our stewardship visits to conserved properties. He was passionate about land conservation work. We will miss his thoughtful input at our board meetings, his wonderful laugh and his wisdom.

“The health of all life, including our own, depends on the health of our soil, water and air, and the complex ecosystems they support. That’s why public and private conservation is so important. The Charlotte Land Trust helps us fulfill our stewardship responsibility right here at the local level, by identifying and negotiating the protection of areas, so they can contribute to Charlotte’s environmental health.” Linda Hamilton
