Over the last year, the Land Between has advanced and grown, forcing them to move out of their current location.
The Land Between “works to achieve bioregionalism; a sense of place and active broad stewardship that is rooted in the understanding that our wellbeing comes from the land,” as noted on the website.
The organization will be moving to a new location in downtown Haliburton where they’ll have more space for staff, indoor plumbing for their turtles, and a better view for local residents and tourists.
For three years, the Haliburton Highlands Outdoors Association has hosted the Land Between on their property.
“We have finally made the tough decision to change our location! After a year of incredible growth we have now outgrown our former space. Thank you Haliburton Highlands Outdoors Association for hosting us on your property for the last three years,” reads their press release.
With a big move, also comes plenty of changes. The Land Between is also looking to hire staff this fall and winter. There are eight different positions that individuals can apply for, and must be under the age of 30. Some positions they’re looking to hire are Communications Specialist, Computer programmer, and Outreach and Education Liaison.
They are also in search of tupperware and rubber-made bins for turtle transport, files and office supplies, and volunteers who want to help with turtle care.
