Board of Trustees

Our board members are all volunteers who contribute not only their time but also funds and resources to support our work.  Beyond a shared passion for preserving Canada’s biodiversity, they bring a wide range of experience and expertise to the governance of the organization.  In addition to their regular board and committee work, our trustees organize our annual fundraising gala and auction and participate in fundraising events such as Run Wild.
