Jackson's Point (2002)

The Jackson’s Point (also known as Phelp’s Point) conservation project was a collaborative project of the South Hero Land Trust and Vermont Land Trust. In March of 2002, the seven families who jointly own the property protected it by donating a conservation easement on 60 acres of woodland. Jackson’s Point provides habitat for various wildlife and is adjacent to what was known as the South Hero Dunes, a series of sand formations established thousands of years ago.The State of Vermont’s Natural Heritage Program lists several threatened and endangered species in close proximity to the property. The conserved land lies near the western shore of South Hero and abuts Crescent Bay Farm, conserved by South Hero Land Trust and Vermont Land Trust in 1999.
