HAT is so lucky to be surrounded by people that are willing to give so much of their time to our cause and the environment. Each month the myriad choices of wonderful people to shine the spotlight on overwhelms us, each as dedicated and worth the praise as the next. This month however we are going to present Meg Lovett to you all, as an incredible volunteer who is making the day to day running of the office possible as well as being out in the field rain or shine cleaning out Screech Owl Boxes.

Meg has her BSc. from the University of British Columbia in Environmental Science and is passionate about creating a sustainable environment, public outreach and working to promote habitat enhancement and protection. Meg has been an absolute pleasure to have in the office and her skills, unique perspectives and education are valuable tools that have benefited us all. Here are a few words from Meg herself:
"Throughout my university experience I worked as a research assistant on a number of projects surrounding the topic of sustainable land use. After I graduated, being from Vancouver Island, I was looking for an organization which had the same focus in my local community and that’s when I found HAT.
Having only been with HAT since January, I feel as though I’m still only scratching the surface when it comes to knowing just how much HAT does. In just two months I have learned so much from the team and have felt comfortable trying new things, such as learning how to write a press release or navigating to owl boxes with a GPS, because of their support. I feel very lucky to have found such a smart and passionate group to work for — not to mention that I definitely fulfill my weekly quota of laughing when i’m at the office! I’m so excited to be a part of the upcoming events in the next few months knowing what HAT has in store!
A big thank you to the HAT team!"
