1 7 With projections for Strategic Plan Protecting the land we love for future generations December
2 Introduction Land trusts are community based, non-profit, charitable organizations that focus on the protection and conservation of lands which have a natural, historic and/or cultural value to the local community. There are over thirty land trusts across Ontario. The Haliburton Highlands Land Trust can trace its beginnings back to. In September of that year, Environment Haliburton hosted a forum to see if there was public interest in forming a land trust. There was such interest and in January 4, seven people agreed to sit on the first Board of Directors to guide the formation of a land trust within Haliburton County. Through their efforts, the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust (HHLT) was incorporated on March, 5. On May 6, 5, HHLT was registered as a charitable organization, and on October, 5, HHLT was approved as a potential recipient of gifts under the Ecological Gifts Program of Environment Canada. A strategic plan is an internal document that guides the workings of an organization. It sets out what the organization wants to accomplish over a period of time and suggests ways and means of achieving goals. A strategic plan is a living document, open to revision and change but is always leading towards the achievement of an organization s central focus. Haliburton Highlands Land Trust developed an initial strategic plan in 9. This was a reasonably detailed and ambitious plan. Parts of it have been implemented but much has not been; it did not fully account for the limited resources available to the land trust. These limitations both in terms of people available to assist with the workload and the finances necessary to move forward on several fronts have caused the land trust some difficulty. During the summer of, the land trust began to embark on a process of renewal. The land trust re-examined its focus and developed a vision statement to guide activities into the future. It examined its governance model and how it might better utilize directors on the Board, employ committees to undertake projects and program components, and, develop and use a strong membership base to achieve its vision. As part of its renewal, the land trust further recognized the need for a staff complement to work with and for the Board of Directors and committees. Into the future the land trust wants to be: The go to agency for land protection. The first point of contact for municipalities within Haliburton wanting environmental information. Recognized by the community as the key environmental group within Haliburton County and used by the community as a trusted advisor for what is best for and what to do with the land. A hub of information on land protection and stewardship within Haliburton County. A source of information by which landowners can be empowered to steward their land. A community based group which supports responsible development and a group respected for its environmental positions taken. A community supported, non-government and independent organization working for the interests of the Haliburton Highlands.
3 Going forward, education, community outreach and private land stewardship are viewed as fundamental avenues through which the land trust will work to support land protection. Land protection through acquisition and management will continue to also be an important component used to secure and maintain representative landscapes. Based on the above, the vision statement of the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust is: The Haliburton Highlands Land Trust is your independent, non-government community resource organization for land and water protection. It protects land and water within Haliburton by: Encouraging broad community engagement and understanding through education and outreach; Encouraging and supporting private land stewardship initiatives which contribute to land and water protection; and, Acquiring and/or managing land parcels representative of the Haliburton natural landscape and historic/cultural heritage. To achieve this vision, the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust must continue to develop its membership base as the foundation of all its programming and governance. It is also clear that funding, while challenging, is vitally necessary if the land trust is to be successful. Therefore the land trust must develop a strategic plan that addresses membership, funding and the vision for the future within a framework of governance and organizational structure that can be sustained. Strategic Goals and Targets Based on the above, six strategic goals have been set:. To have a large and demographically diverse membership that is supportive of the land trust.. To have funds each year sufficient to support the programs and administrative structure of the land trust.. To have administrative and operational policies that guide the workings of the land trust. 4. To have the public-at-large aware of and supportive of the land trust. 5. To have the public-at-large steward their lands in a manner that conserves and protects its natural, historic and/or cultural values. 6. To protect and manage lands that are representative of the natural, historic and cultural heritage within Haliburton County. In order to better measure just how successful the land trust is at meeting the six goals, measureable targets have been set. These targets are given timelines over five years and a further forecast of achievables at the end of ten years. They provide a focal point to aspire too.
4 The Strategic Plan The purpose of this strategic plan is to offer guidance in meeting the goals and targets that contribute to achieving the vision of the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust. This plan will serve to keep activities focused. It will serve as a guide for the development of annual committee and staff workplans and budgets. As part of that process, the plan will be reviewed on an annual basis to measure the progress and consider updates based on internal and external factors and opportunities. Six committees have been established to address the goals. Each committee is responsible for one of the strategic goals and the activities associated with the goal. As such, each committee is charged with developing detailed workplans on specific activities required. Each committee reports to the Board of Directors. The committees may establish working groups to assist with meeting objectives associated with each goal. The committees along with their key activities are:. Membership Committee : membership development; partnerships; community networking; volunteer coordination. Funding Committee: annual budget development; funding and revenue development. Governance Committee: administrative and program policy development; terms of reference; human resources 4. Communications and Outreach Committee: promotional material development; community education; promotional events; 5. Stewardship Committee: development of information library on stewardship; outreach to private landowners and community organizations 6. Lands Committee: identification of lands of interest; securement of lands of interest; management of lands of interest. Below are the goals with associated activities. Expected outcomes and timelines for the completion of activities are provided to assist workplanning. It is anticipated that outcomes and timelines may change as more detailed workplanning is done and activities are completed/adjusted through time. The purpose of having the outcomes and timelines in the strategic plan is to provide initial guidance and a sense of priority. In and of themselves they are not must haves but rather directional signposts showing the way forward towards achieving the vision of the land trust through the implementation of the strategic plan.
5 Goal : To have a large and demographically diverse membership that is supportive of the land trust (responsibility of the Membership & Networking Committee) To achieve Goal. Create a database on all current land trust members that includes information such as:. Dates of membership. Class of membership. Financial support given each year 4. Address/telephone/ 5.

Working with other committees, approach potential partners and network colleagues on specific projects The land trust has documentation on partners and organizations with which it should consider working. This leads to increased partnerships and networking and hence the accomplishments of the land trust increase.
