Vendovi paintbrush (1 of 1)The Campaign to Save Vendovi Island

The acquisition of Vendovi Island in December 2010 is arguably the most significant conservation effort undertaken in the history of the Preservation Trust. In the Fall of 2010, Vendovi was put up for sale at auction. At stake was a 217-acre, virtually untouched island with nearly three miles of shoreline, abundant wildflower fields and lush fern forests. The Preservation Trust acted swiftly and, with the financial backing of one visionary individual, we were successful in the auction and subsequent negotiations.
