How To Help


Peter A Krusch Nature Preserve

Peter A Krusch Nature Preserve.
316 North Cambridge Road, Cambridge, VT 05444

In December 2020, the Town of Cambridge acquired this 51 acre Preserve, which borders the Cambridge Pines Natural Area/State Forest. The land was owned and stewarded for 60 years by Peter A Krusch, who had envisioned the land preserved, conserved, and open to the public. A three-year cooperative effort between the Town of Cambridge, the Cambridge Conservation Commission, the Vermont Land Trust, and Sally Laughlin (Peter’s widow) has resulted in the donation of the land and the establishment of the Preserve.

Volunteers are now building the Preserve’s  trail to the design created by Erin Amadon of Towns4Trails llc.

We are seeking volunteers for weekend work parties currently scheduled at three week intervals through the middle of next year, except through the coldest months. We are grateful whatever time and level of effort our volunteers are able to offer.
