Volunteer Spotlight April 2019 - Kathleen Cathcart

Volunteer Spotlight April 2019 - Kathleen Cathcart 

In this fourth Volunteer Spotlight of 2019, we'd like to highlight Kathleen Cathcart, a Habitat Restoration Volunteer! Kathleen was instrumental in the success of many of our restoration events, from coordinatinkathleen cathcartg with volunteers, creating posters for events and assisting with HAT's Big Bat Bash, Kathleen has been a a huge help! 

When we asked Kathleen what she liked best about volunteering with HAT and what first inspired her to begin volunteering with us, she had this to say: 

"My favourite experience has to be the trip we did to Galiano Island to remove scotch broom. It was such a nice day over looking the cliffs down to the water. I couldn’t believe how much we removed that day. Hanging out with everyone on the ferry ride home watching the sunset is incredibly memorable.

I wanted to get involved with HAT because  I was able to work closely with Wendy, the Habitat [Management] Coordinator, and I learned a lot from her about her job and how she goes about handling each project. I was also able to get some experience with some of the more urban restoration projects, like in the Matson Conservation Area in Esquimalt. I hope to bring this experience forward with me during my masters at SFU and BCIT in Ecological Restoration."

Thank you to Kathleen for your hard work and dedication to HAT, for contributing so much to our events and helping out where ever you can. We are so grateful for your support and hope that your experience will be a wonderful example to inspire others to get involved in volunteering with HAT.
