HAT's man in the field Todd Carnahan presents anecdotes from a season chasing turtles, snakes, and kids with rakes. Also, a Special Guest TBA... From Knockan Hill to Havenwood Park, HAT has been working in your community to create conservation legacies. 2008 was a busy time for the land trust - We'll survey the highlights of HAT's outreach and research over the last 12 months.
Learn why the Painted Turtle crossed the road and other mysteries. Find out what it takes to get over 100 children planting a naturescape garden in winter weather. Discover Vancouver Island's smallest snake and meet the hardest working conservationists in your region. Coffee, Tea, snacks, and excellent taxidermy.
HAT members, staff, board members, and other volunteers invite you to join them for our Annual General Meeting. We promise less bureaucracy and more nature photos.
