Welcome to the Jericho Underhill Land Trust (JULT)
Jericho Underhill Land Trust is a private, non-profit organization founded for the purpose of conserving our productive working landscape, scenic vistas and important wildlife habitats. JULT accomplishes that mission by working hand-in-hand with landowners and interested citizens who share a similar goal.
Come to our Annual Meeting on May 5th
Check out the great bat-related items we'll be raffling off at our Annual Meeting on May 5th. Join us at Underhill Town Hall at 6:30 p.m.
Tree Planting at Mills Riverside Park
On May 3 and 4 we will collaborate with the Mills Riverside Park District, the Jericho Conservation Commission, Browns River Middle School and the Underhill ID School to plant silver maples in Mills Riverside Park to shade out the invasive knotweed. When we're done, we'll number the trees and put them up for adoption. We'll ask park users to pick a tree and help us make sure no knotweed is growing around it. It takes a community to plant a tree in a knotweed patch, but trees grow stronger with supportive caretakers. Will you adopt a tree? Stay tuned for more information about this exciting project.
Save the Date - May 5
Don't forget to put our Annual Meeting on your calendar for May 5th. We'll meet at Underhill Town Hall at 6:30 for light refreshments and conversation. After a short meeting at 7:00, Barry Genzlinger, aka Barry the Bat Guy, will provide a presentation on bats of the world with emphasis on Vermont bats and the effect of White Nose Syndrome. Please join us.
