Gareth is a career environmental educator and certified interpretive guide, with a passion for connecting people to nature and conservation.  His interest in birds began as a child, fueled by his mother’s interest and time spent on a family farm outside Ottawa.  One winter in his teens he spent many long evenings listening to birdsong tapes and poring over Peterson’s ‘Field Guide to the Birds;’ the following spring was truly memorable as, one by one, he met a multitude of new bird species as they arrived in waves during migration. He currently runs a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering community leadership to solving environmental problems.
