LTABC Fall 2013 Workshop: Covenant Management
This year LTABC is pleased to announce a Covenant Management Workshop in cooperation with the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
It will take place October 24 and 25 in Victoria as an intensive 2-day learning opportunity. This will replace the 2013 Seminar Series (which will return in 2014).
This workshop is being held as most member land trusts hold covenants and we feel this type of learning opportunity will benefit a majority of our members. We are pleased that both National NCC staff and Regional NCC staff will be leading the sessions. This is a wonderful chance to really learn from leaders in the field of covenant management and we are grateful to NCC for partnering with us.
We are also adding on to the program pre-workshop sessions on our Youth Program to educate and attract youth from across BC to the work of land trusts as well as a session on social media and how we can best employ these tools to broaden our message. These are both included in the registration cost.
Registration includes the workshop, meals, breaks, the awards lunch and one night shared accommodation.
As this is an intensive workshop participation will be limited. Please mail or email your registration form as soon as possible.

Together we have conserved heritage farms, gardens, and over one million acres of natural landscapes.
Habitat Acquisition Trust is Victoria's local land trust.Protecting over 4000 acres of natural habitat in one the most populated regions of the Province, while working with over 300 volunteers to protect, restore, and build a community that loves and lives in nature.
