GaLTT volunteers run all our activities and events, providing the labour and other resources for our projects of all kinds; we are very lucky and grateful to have them. Membership fees have always provided the bulk of our annual income, funding administrative expenses such as insurance and bookkeeping services and practical expenses such as materials for building boardwalks, printing our maps, and so on.
But conservation takes more! Covenant management and direct land acquisition have significant upfront and longterm costs. Although we don’t currently hold land, we have contributed substantial funds toward purchasing park lands held by the RDN on Gabriola and Mudge Island, and we hope to continue to support such acquisitions. Community education—an increasingly important part of our conservation activities—requires an investment of not just time but funds. When it comes to conservation, donors are critically important to our work.
