Happy New Year!
2012 mark 15 years for Habitat Acquisition Trust,and throughout the year we celebrate our past, but to begin we would to announce something new - new Board members that is. HAT is pleased to welcome Jan Garnett and Rob Mortin to the Board for their first terms.
Well, not quite first term for Jan. In fact, Jan was one of HAT's founding Board Members in December 1996. Since then, she's been the Regional Vice-President of the BC Region of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and currently the President of EcoLegacy International. Jan has a one the driving forces behind BC's growing Land Trust community for many years, and has helped lead many successful conservation projects, including the acquisition of Darkwoods, 136,000 acres of natural habitat in the southern Interior.
Rob Mortin is the Controller for the BC region of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and brings his passion for the environment, fishing, and his knowledge of conservation finance to the Board. Engaged in conservation at the Provincial level, his volunteerism with HAT will allow him to apply his knowledge to local issues as well.
