Group Photo Okanagan Grape Escape Oct. 2021

Over the past 50 years of my professional career, I’ve been driven to do all that I can to protect and restore the natural world, in particular the wild species and wilderness areas of my country, Canada.

I continue to carry out this mission in a variety of ways. At present, I’m fully booked for this fast-approaching summer season as a tour director and guide with two tour companies. I’ll soon be wrapping up another winter of giving illustrated presentations mostly based on the trips I’ve led to several retirement residences in the Greater region.

I also provide secretarial services as coordinator of the the Greater Victoria NatureHood, a national initiative that seeks to connect children, youth and families with nature that is nearby. In their backyard, neighbourhood and community. Currently there are 12 actively engaged organizations collaborating in this important work.

In addition, I assist the Friends of Shoal Harbour Migratory Bird Sanctuary with their public outreach and school programs. I believe I’m coming up to 7 years in this role.

Last, but certainly not least, I serve as a director of the Victoria Natural History Society. I’m very proud to say that we’re a highly-engaged board and I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish as advocates for parks and wildlife in the region.

To learn more about what I do and possibly can do for you, please contact me.
