Following a meaningful engagement and planning process, the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust (HHLT) has developed a new strategic plan that outlines our priorities for the next three years, from 2023 to 2026. Recognizing that this is an ambitious plan, the Board may opt to extend the term of the plan to 2028, after a review of progress to date.
Our strategic plan is an aspirational document that provides a roadmap to how we will realize our desired future. Our vision – A Haliburton County with an abundance of protected lands and waters, where healthy, connected ecosystems allow wildlife and people to thrive, and help in the fight against climate change – is critically important as we think about the world we want to live in and help to foster.
Our purpose as an organization is to bring this vision to life through a set of crucial activities, which will require our passion, energy, skills, and dedication. It will mean that we spend some of our time strengthening the foundation of our organization, while continuing our current programs and partnerships, and further expanding our reach and connections throughout the community.
As a relatively small land trust, we have already achieved a great deal for our community. We own, manage, and protect five properties, representing 1,200 acres in Haliburton County. However, we recognize that it is not only about the lands we steward as ecosystems are connected. We are now also focused on conservation at a broader level and are committed to supporting the protection of significant wildlife corridors. By embarking on this next chapter of our journey, we re-commit ourselves to this important work.
