Doolittle South Mountain Lands

On December 14, 2022, the Mount Holly Conservation Trust and the State of Vermont completed the project to protect forever a 440-acre property in Mount Holly and Weston known as the Doolittle South Mountain Lands!

The land is now a new (still unnamed) wildlife management area (WMA) and is open to the public.

  3. Acquire financial resources for conservation
  4. Work with other organizations to promote the mission of the Mount Holly Conservation Trust

What We Do

We protect the land and natural features that make Mount Holly such a special place to be–farms, forests, ponds, rivers, trails, and more. We want to ensure what we cherish will remain for future generations to enjoy.
