Top 5 Reasons to Volunteer with HAT 
      1. Educational - learn from HAT staff and other volunteers about the importance of native ecosystems, local species and the history of local lands. 
      2. We're Local - help your own community and region by volunteering with HAT as we focus all of our work within the Capital Regional District (CRD).
      3. Learn New Skills - we always  make sure our volunteers benefit from their experience by learning a new skill or two along the way. 
      4. Protect Nature - the more help we have the more resources and time will be availble to commit to the important goal of protecting land in the CRD.
      5. Fun! - whether your exploring a pristine wooded area with our covenant coordinator or coming up with new material for one of our programs, well remember to keep things fun.
For example, HAT has several volunteers helping us out by:
    • Running our board of directors
    • Office and fieldwork 
    • Planting with school children
    • Mapping properties with GPS and ArcGIS
    • Creating new organizational policies
    • Sharing our mission with the community at outreach event tables

    You are truly making a difference in the local community by volunteering with HAT. We provide references and letters of recommendation for students and whomever is looking to grow their resume.
