Reggie Ellingwood memorial

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

The Vermont River Conservancy Board and staff are very saddened by the sudden loss of a dear friend and dedicated conservationist, Reggie Ellingwood.  Reggie recently conserved his property on the Connecticut River with a River Corridor Easement and public access to the Holbrook Point campsite for paddlers of the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail.  He will be missed by many.  Memorial gifts made in his honor are being dedicated to the Vermont River Conservancy.  Gifts in Reggie’s honor can be made here, and will be used in accordance to his family’s wishes for supporting future river conservation projects in Vermont.

Many thanks to all who contributed to create the Reggie Ellingwood Memorial Fund.  Reggie’s land stewardship legacy will continue on through this fund, which will be used in accordance to his family’s wishes for supporting future river conservation projects in Vermont.
