7:00 Presentation

8:00 Annual General Meeting

Our guest speaker for the 2020 AGM is a little out of the ordinary for one of our AGM’s.  Mike Daniels, head of Policy and Land Management at the John Muir Trust will speak to us from his home in Scotland, located not far from the small town of Perth, a few hours drive northwest of Edinburgh.  Mike has graciously agreed to stay up late (7 p.m. our time being midnight in Scotland) to talk to us about: John Muir’s legacy in the land of his birth – The John Muir Trust, wild land, communities and conservation in Scotland

Mike will explore the conservation challenges posed in Scotland by concentrated private land ownership; the legacy of Victorian hunting estates; over-tourism and large scale windfarms in a wild landscape shaped by the continual influence of man. The opportunities posed by land reform and community ownership; natural carbon capture and increasing public concern about intensive hunting systems offer hope for the future.

Although Scotland is far from home, the conservation challenges faced by an organization with similar objectives to ours but in a very different landscape will, I’m sure, be of interest to all of us.  And the photos that Mike will present of their unique properties, many in the Highlands, will amaze us as well.
