Spotlight on Heritage Conservation Matters

The Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT) is preparing to host its 40th Annual General Meeting on Saturday, December 3 at the Saint Lucia Civil Service Association in Sans Souci, Castries from 1 p.m.

Members of the Trust are encouraged to turn out in large numbers as this provides an opportunity to learn more about our conservation projects undertaken throughout the year and our plans for 2017. There will also be an opportunity for current financial members to elect the next Council which will guide the affairs of the Trust.

SLNTโ€™s Director, Bishnu Tulsie said, โ€œWe have a mammoth task to help conserve Saint Luciaโ€™s natural and built heritage. However, we cannot do it on our own as such we rely on our members to provide the requisite support at various levels in order to achieve our goals. Over the years, we have successfully managed the Pigeon Island National Landmark and undertaken bio-security monitoring of our offshore islands which serve as a home for many unique fauna and flora. We have also done tree planting activities to rehabilitate areas damaged by hurricanes and played an integral role in the restoration of the childhood home of Derek and Roderick Walcott.โ€

Transportation to the AGM will be provided for members from Soufriere, Vieux Fort and environs. Please call 452-5005 or email [email protected] to confirm your attendance.

Membership to the Trust can be obtained for as little as EC$5 for children under 12; children 12 to under 18 pay EC$12, while persons 18 and older pay EC$40 annually. Call us for more information on how you could become a member of this important conservation movement which seeks to conserve our heritage for present and future generations.
