Leaders of Change- A Humber Watershed Champion, Richard Hunt
by Webmaster

Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) has honoured BDHS Life Member Richard HUNT with its Watershed Champion Award. 

The Humber Watershed Champions profile features leaders in the Humber River watershed who are making a difference on behalf of our Canadian Heritage River.

An excerpt from the TRCA website:

Richard Hunt has been the BDHS Director of Environmental Projects for 13 years.

During this time the Society has partnered with other local partners in initiating and financing a wide variety of environmental projects in Caledon, including developing wetlands, fish ways and planting approximately 5,000 native wildflowers, trees and shrubs.

Since his youth, Richard has been keenly interested in all forms of wildlife and forestry and after retiring from a variety of Naval, Police, Medical Technology, Contract Administration and Facility Management careers, he joined the BDHS and is thoroughly enjoying his new volunteer career in helping to restore and improve our environment.

Thanks to Richard, our Watershed Champion and the BDHS for making a difference!

"Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
-Margaret Mead
