Habitat Acquisition Trust helps people understand and care for natural environments in the Capital region. We are a non-profit, regional land trust.
HAT works to protect land permanently. We do this in three ways:
-land acquisition through purchase or donation;
-education & stewardship.
HAT accepts donations of property, purchases land, and helps landowners establish permanent legal restrictions to protect natural habitats. HAT works in partnership with governments and other non-profit organizations to achieve our goals. We also work with communities, schools, and individual landowners to enhance habitat protection on private land - making everyone part of the solution!
