Nancy Bell


Nancy Bell is the Fund's Vermont Director and lives in Shrewsbury.  She has worked across the Northern Forest for decades.  Her twenty-plus-year career emerged from a grass roots activist background that fueled a passion for landscape conservation, particularly for wildlife habitat.  

With The Fund since 1995, she is skilled at community engagement and has built unique partnerships to conserve ~ 500,000 acres across northern New England.  Nancy is a recipient of numerous honors for her work including the national Chevron/Times Mirror Magazine Conservation Award and the Vermont Land Trust Community Conservation Award. In addition, Nancy founded, and for 11 years has directed, The Settlement Project, a cutting edge children’s summer camp that focuses on sense of place, the environment and social responsibility.  Nancy is wildly motivated by time in the woods and paddling the Northern Forest’s lakes and rivers. Watercolor painting and writing poetry fill the quiet times.
