SVT is dedicated to preserving the special quality of life that characterizes the region for more than 650,000 residents as well as non-resident employees of local firms in the thirty-six communities within the watershed. SVT's mission is guided by a comprehensive strategic plan, and fulfilled through land acquisition and stewardship, advocacy and education.
