HAT launches Invasive Species Speaking Tour with CRD

HAT launches Invasive Species Speaking Tour with CRD 

HAT and CRD Environmental Services are working together to deliver presentations around the region for residents interested in removing invasive plant species from their property. 

Talk title: Invasive Plants in Your Garden and How to Conquer Them

Bothered by blackberry, bindweed, and ivy? Join Paige, Stewardship Coordinator for Habitat Acquisition Trust, as she talks about how to support nature in our backyards with native plants, and how to get rid of invasive species in your yard once and for all with some easy-to-do techniques. Paige grew up on Shawnigan Lake exploring nature with her dogs, and has been enthralled by the natural world from a young age. After studying geography and botany at UVic and working with HAT, Paige is now the Pollinator Steward for the Haliburton Farm Urban Biodiversity Enhancement and Restoration Project and is co-chair of the Native Plant Study Group.

HAT's Annual General Meeting is NEXT WEEK!

You are invited to HAT's Annual General Meeting

This is it: You're chance to vote on some of the things that help HAT do the conservation work that means so much to all of us. HAT and organizations like it are nothing if not the coming together of a community, it is the expression of our collective desire to see the ecosystems that sustain us stewarded in a good way, building a relationship between not only those of us in the HAT community, but between us humans and the other-than-humans that are our neighbours.

Participating in these meetings are our chance as members (literally, for voting purposes) to add our voices to the governance of this wonderful organization, to meet the board, and to chat with and hear from staff on projects that went on last year.

Please join us. It means a lot, and you will be pleased to enjoy a special reading by local author Anny Scoones from her book Island Home.

WHEN: January 30th at the Hatley Castle Drawing Room (2005 Sooke Road, Colwood)

What Time: 6:00pm for mingling, 6:30pm for the meeting.

If you need any more information, please call us at the HAT office 250.995.2428

HAT and YMCA Seek Salamanders in the Forest

We are excited to partner with YMCA-YWCA of Greater Victoria Camp Thunderbird Program Manager Hana Kucera to monitor for our local salamander species with 5 of these artificial cover objects (ACOs) - specially designed boards that allow for creatures to crawl under and into the little spaces it creates. To learn more about salamanders, visit our Amphibians and Roads Project or Check out our Amphibian Stewardship Series

Then the visiting campers will be monitoring the boards once per week to assess which species are present. Science in Action! Huge thanks to YMCA Camp Thunderbird


This is thanks to our Good Neighbours Wildwood Wetland Stewardship Program funded by Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, EcoAction, Sitka Foundation, the Province of BC, and donors like you. To support the work HAT does, you can become an Amphibian Ally.
