Contribute to the Canute Dalmasse Legacy Fund

A lifelong friend of rivers, Canute Dalmasse passed away in 2008. He was a Vermont public servant for 36 years, including positions as Commissioner of Environmental Conservation and Deputy Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources. He had a special love for Vermont’s rivers, a passion his family and friends carry forward with annual contributions in his honor. For nearly 15 years now, the Canute Dalmasse Legacy Fund has helped catalyze some of Vermont River Conservancy’s most innovative conservation efforts across the state.
