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.

Excellent News!

The advisory vote to conserve Mobbs Farm passed overwhelmingly. The vote count was 1033 to 101. Jericho residents sent a clear message to the Selectboard to pursue the permanent protection of this exquisite land. Next steps include an affirmative vote by the Selectboard to proceed. The Mobbs Farm Committee, along with JULT, will be working hard to keep this favorable momentum going. Vermont Land Trust (VLT) will work with the Town on a conservation easement that VLT will “hold”. The cost to conserve Mobbs Farm is $43,000 with $25,000 of that going into a VLT stewardship endowment fund. This ensures that VLT has the resources necessary to monitor Mobbs Farm in perpetuity. Monitoring involves walking the land on an annual basis to check for any conservation easement violations or encroachments and of course, helping with any stewardship questions.

Additional good news includes that the $43,000 necessary has already been raised from a number of funds. JULT is contributing $10,000 and another $13,000 through a very generous donation. VLT is supporting this effort with $10,000 though a Town forest grant and $10, 000 is coming from Jericho’s Conservation Reserve Fund (CRF). This last sum needs to be approved by the selectboard and we expect that it will be. The Jericho Conservation Committee sent the CRF application with a very high recommendation for funding. We are looking forward to including Mobbs Farm in JULT’s list of conserved properties in Jericho and Underhill that provide exceptional recreational opportunities along scenic and diverse landscapes.
