Farewell to Wendy

After 14 years with HAT, Wendy Tyrrell has departed her position as Habitat Management Coordinator to start a role with Islands Trust Conservancy. Wendy began her work with HAT in a land protection role but eventually was instrumental in creating and coordinating HAT’s Habitat Management Program wherein she was a strong advocate for ecological management within HAT’s protected areas. Wendy believes strongly in community-led restoration and the power of healing the Earth to also heal ourselves.

Over the years, Wendy worked tirelessly to connect volunteers with opportunities to participate in ecological restoration. She facilitated long-lasting groups such as the Matson Mattocks and Friends of Havenwood Park. We’ll dearly miss Wendy as a key HAT team member, and we’re so proud of her for taking the next step in her career. Stepping into Wendy’s role in an acting capacity is Sara Lax who has already hit the ground running.
