Ducks Unlimited (DU) teamed up with the South Hero Land Trust, VT Agency of Natural Resources, VT Duck Stamp Fund, TNC, the Lake Champlain Land Trust and the VT Land Trust to protect 356 acres of wetlands, farmlands, and shoreline habitats. A combination of fee title acquisition and in-perpetuity Conservation Easements were used to secure this property. The Landon Farm, located on the east shore of South Hero, in Grande Island County, has been in the Landon family for over 200 years. Round Pond, a 125-acre wetland found on the property, is characterized as one of the most important unprotected wetlands in Northeast Vermont.   Not any longer! The area is home to several rare plants and hosts numerous wildlife species, including breeding black ducks and mallards. Management of the area will include public access for hunting, fishing and nature observation. A system of sustainable agriculture practices will be developed for lands currently under cultivation
