Vanessa is passionately involved with anything green, watery or mountainous! The love affair all started about 11 years ago with tracking snakes in Ontario Provincial Parks has continued since with environmental education and interpretation out west in various positions, from a Richmond classroom teacher, a Vancouver Aquarium interpreter to my current position as a Metro Vancouver Regional Parks Interpretation Leader. She has also previously dedicated her time volunteering for the David Suzuki Foundation, and is currently on the executive committees of Interpretation Canada and EEPSA (Environmental Educators Provincial Specialist Association). She has been dedicated to connecting people to nature’s awe and wonder, and hope to inspire care of place and wild things. Vanessa recently completed a Masters of Ecological Education. Vanessa joined the board in 2011.
