Links to Partner Organizations

   The mission of the Hazen's Notch Association includes conservation, education, recreation, research, and stewardship. Numerous nonprofit organizations throughout the state share many of these goals. They include education and recreation providers, natural and cultural heritage sites, environmental advocates, land trusts, research centers and stewardship organizations.

   Vermont is fortunate to have so many organizations working to protect the state's natural and cultural resources. Through their excellent work these groups are helping Vermonters to maintain the vitality of our communities through an informed and caring relationship with our landscape.

   The following links are offered as a source of further information on various topics relating to Vermont's natural and cultural history. Although each organization is listed only once in the directory, their activities may apply to more than one category.
