Land trust premieres two videos during online event

The Haliburton Highlands Land Trust is excited to premiere two new videos at a public, online event.  Everyone is invited to tune in via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 3. The event registration link will be shared on Facebook and on the HHLT website at www.haliburtonlandtrust.ca. HHLT chair, Shelley Hunt, will host this live, online event. 

In 2021, HHLT was awarded an Ontario Trillium Foundation Resilient Communities Fund (OTF RCF) grant for $48,000. The funds have been used to help the Land Trust rebuild and recover from the impacts of the pandemic by redesigning and updating our website, creating an informational video, and  offering educational and training programs for our volunteers. As part of these efforts, a key project activity was to hire a videographer to document Land Trust properties with public access. We are proud to report that Brad Brown of UpsideBrown was hired to showcase the important values and uses of Dahl Forest and Barnum Creek Nature Reserve.

The Land Trust is thrilled to premiere “Conservation in Action” as part of our OTF recognition event. Brad will be present to talk briefly about filming the video and to answer any questions you might have. 

In addition to this video, we are taking the opportunity to premiere another special video, “Wonder in the Woods” made by Sticks and Stones Productions and funded by TD Friends of the Environment. Videographers Tammy Rea and Midori Nagai will also be in attendance.
