The Mission of the
Passumpsic Valley Land Trust:

To conduct conservation activities related to the Passumpsic River and its watershed, with a focus on the recreational, educational, ecological, and historic assets afforded by these resources.

The East Burke Dam removal is complete. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making it possible over the past 17 years.

You can own a piece of history thanks to the Connecticut River Conservancy. They are selling bowls, pens, and keychains made from wood removed from the sediment trapped above the dam. Profits benefit our organization and theirs, and the work was done by local artists—husband and wife team, Sam and Weeza Sanderson.
