Middlebury Land Trust has called Middlebury home for 49 years. Now, MLT has a house to call home as the land trust grows to meet the future. The recent purchase of 1.8 acres, located adjacent to MLT's Juniper Hill Natural Area, has a small house, which will allow the land trust to consolidate records, and create a working space for a part-time administrative assistant. The new acquisition also allows ample parking and safer access to the public at Juniper Hill. Juniper Hill was donated by Mark and Lem Sperry. MLT hosts events on the 168 acre, scenic property, which also offer visitors a network of trails and a pond. The acquisition comes at a good time for the group. MLT now owns 695 acres and has conservation easements of over 1220 acres, a total of 1,915 acres. "MLT has grown to a point where our volunteers are kept very busy and the house is really needed," said MLT Treasurer Curtis V. Titus.
