The Southern Interior Land Trust is interested in welcoming new additions to its board of directors.

If you are passionate about conserving land for wildlife in the Southern Interior of B.C., consider sending some information about your interest and what you would bring to the board in an e-mail to secretary-treasurer Gord Wilson.

The board is especially interested in adding particular skill sets to the makeup of the team, so if you have a legal mind, skills in fund-raising, promotion, grant-writing, accounting, use of social media, land appraisal or real estate, ecology or biology, construction, selling or marketing or environmental restoration, SILT would like to hear from you.

You might find yourself exploring new properties to determine their importance for conservation; working on the ground on restoration projects; raising the profile of SILT, or funds to purchase properties with important natural features; or preparing grant applications to ensure another gem of wildlife habitat can be conserved in its natural state.
You’d be a volunteer, and it’s work, but it’s satisfying work.
