As many of you know, by the time you read this note I will no longer be Executive Director. I will remain involved in the conservation movement as long as I am able – putting my energy toward defending nature, moving off a carbon-based economy and reminding people that their health is directly linked to a healthy environment. I thank you for your confidence in Sierra Club BC, and please continue to support the good work we do.
