As the flowers and blossoms come on strong, the seasons turn, with new and unexplored natural events calling us to wake up. LINC is inviting you to attend our 2022 Annual General Meeting, May 21, Saturday at the Judith Fisher Centre at 11 am. After hearing about last year’s projects, we will review and discuss this year’s plans for stewardship and conservation around the island. Then, two new stalwart Lasquetians will stand for election along with the current board.  

Following the business meeting, we invite you to Mt. Trematon to enjoy one of Lasqueti’s Nature Reserves and to have a look at the recent biodiversity restoration project. Put us on your calendar for May 21st. and bring a lunch.

Check out our new website full of lots of natural history and cool photos from people in our community of the natural diversity and beauty found around the island. Many thanks to Ian Rosconi, Ken Lertzman, Izzy and Julia for getting this wonderful resource up and running. 

On May 30th the False Bay School kids, their parents and a few others will travel to Mt. Trematon for a Bioblitz. This is an opportunity for the kids to learn about the plants, birds, insects and more that make our island so special to live on. Participants will do an inventory under the guidance of Cora Skaien, the biologist leading the Restoration project at the site, Catriona Gordon, an environmental educator and part of the family who donated Mt. Trematon for nature conservation to the community, and Petra Knight, False Bay School’s wonderful Grade 4-7 teacher who has returned to the island with a passion for getting the kids out in nature! 

The calendar is getting full! On Friday, June 24th LINC with the Last Resort Society are co-hosting a workshop on Estate Planning. Join us at 11 am to welcome Carla Funk, a Strategic Fund Development Specialist with the Islands Trust Conservancy. She will describe options for financial and estate planning that can help you reduce or eliminate costly capital gains taxes, and at the same time help your family and the organizations that you love, as you pass the torch to the next generations. Land transfer to the next generation or other land trust organizations will be of particular interest for discussion. We hope to see you soon! The LINC team
