SLT 22-23 Annual Meeting Year in Review .pdf

You are invited to our Annual Membership Meeting hosted online this year. Come see what we have accomplished together in 2022, help us elect new board members, cast your vote for bylaw updates, and learn about plans for the year to come.

The evening will feature community awards, the announcement of a few newly completed conservation projects, and a presentation by by the Trust's Community Science Team on the March Point Heronry and Great Blue Herons.

With the 2023 nesting season about to start, this presentation is a great way to learn about these beloved local birds, Trust efforts to protect them, and ways to watch their fluffy chicks grow into full-sized adults in just a few short months.
