Colchester Residents Discuss Conservation
The Colchester Land Trust held a meeting for area residents to discuss how land could be preserved in the future in and around Colchester. Residents had an opportunity to learn how conservation easements work, both through the local Colchester Land Trust and the Vermont Land Trust. The community also weighed in on what projects they’d like to see in the area, including an extended bike trail, protection of the Lake Champlain shoreline and agricultural land, and the creation of a recreational space for children. Most agreed that discussions should continue through open meetings with the land trusts and local boards and commissions. You can read more of this story at the Burlington Free Press.
