Conservation License Plate

Invest in your children's and their children's future. Purchase Vermont's conservation plate and let others know that you believe Vermont's animals, plants and natural communities are worth protecting. Money from the sale of conservation plates supports not only the Nongame Wildlife Fund, but also the Watershed Grant Fund.

The Watershed Grant Fund assists localized efforts to protect water resources. The fund provides grants to towns, nonprofit organization and community groups with specific watershed projects. A watershed is a river, stream, lake, pond, or wetland along with the surrounding land and water that drains into it.

Since the plate was first introduced in 1997, Vermont drivers have registered or renewed over 9,500 vehicles with the conservation plate. The plate sales have generated more than $0.5 million for projects supported by the Nongame Wildlife Fund and the Watershed Grant Fund. By purchasing a plate, Vermont drivers are helping to protect those natural things that make Vermont a special and unique place to live. Lamoille Planting
