Conservation Covenant Workshop — Sat Oct 30

By request the Mayne Island Conservancy Society is offering a workshop on Conservation Covenants on October 30th from 11am to 3:30pm at the Ag Hall (lunch provided).

This is a follow up from our workshop on the Sensitive Ecosystem Inventory mapping last April. The workshop will include stories told by landowners from Pender and Galiano who have placed conservation covenants on all or part of their property and short case studies from a DVD called People Protecting Places.

Following lunch, Kate Emmings, Ecosystems Protection Specialist with the Islands Trust Fund, will talk about the Natural Area Protection Tax Exemption Program (NAPTEP) and Adam Taylor, Executive Director of Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT), will address other covenanting possibilities including steps to be taken towards achieving a conservation covenant. If time permits, there will be an introduction to the EcoGift program.

If you have questions please contact Helen O'Brian, MICS, or planner Alison Fox, Islands Trust.

If you are planning to attend please RSVP Helen so that we can better arrange lunch.

Contact Info: Helen O'Brian (250) 539-5619 or (250) 405-5194 or heleno@gulfislands.com. Alison Fox afox@islandstrust.bc.ca
