Our organization is led by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by committees that are led by volunteers and supported by staff. These committees focus on identifying and assisting land securement, long term land stewardship, and developing resources and opportunities to help enhance those goals. We have also established additional specific land stewardship and advisory teams for lands we own and care for.
For 2017, the Board of Directors has planned seven formal meetings which include quarterly review of finances and all aspects of the organizations work. In addition, an Investment and Finance & Audit committees have been established to assist the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities related to finance, audit, risk management and internal controls.
There are at least sixty dedicated and experienced people on our operational committees, Board, Board Committees and staff. This does not include partners like Kawarthas Naturally Connected collaborative, where KLT is the lead agency, partnerships with academic institutions including Fleming College Ecosystem Management & Restoration Program and Trent University Institute for Conservation Biology and volunteer groups including the Kawartha and Peterborough Field Naturalists, local business, nonprofit associations, cottage associations and private landowners for trail agreements and stewardship.
We continue to build our volunteer resources, supported by core staff as a primary driver to deliver on our mission. In 2016, we recorded over 90 volunteers contributing more than 6,000 hours.
