We believe that by working together, forest landowners have a far greater impact than each could have alone.

Cold Hollow To Canada's Woodlots Program has been going strong since 2013. We think the program has been an overwhelming success, and after sharing our story with conservation groups, municipal entities, and land use planning organizations, many have contacted us to ask, “How do you do it?” 

Through this Toolkit, we share our program design and resources, thanks to funding from the High Meadows Fund and a Vermont Watershed Grant. Your own goals and landscape context may be different from ours. Please adapt the program as you see fit, learning from our successes and our stumbling blocks while making the program your own.
