Nature Conservancy Looks to Purchase and Preserve 3,500 Acres on Glebe Mountain

 | Published on 12/15/2018
The Nature Conservancy currently has an option to purchase 3,500-acres at Glebe Mountain. A successful acquisition will safeguard a rich forest block for wildlife habitat. Not only does the site contain one of the most significant beech stands in southern Vermont—an important source of food for bears in summer and fall—the site is important for northern New England forest birds, such as Wood Thrush and Canada Warbler, whose populations are in decline.They need your help to raise $3.5 million for Glebe Mountain. Your support will protect 3,500-acres of critical forest for wildlife, water quality, and people. 

The property will remain open to the public for hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, and hunting. There are few organizations in Vermont that can take on a conservation project at this scale. With your help, The Nature Conservancy is positioned to act now and conserve Glebe Mountain in perpetuity.
