Big Canoe Project is a not for profit social enterprise that offers guided tours, day camp and field trip opportunities to youth, team building challenges and paddling experiences for populations under served by the outdoor adventure industry. We use Water Rangers test kits with the groups we take out on the waters of Southern Georgian Bay to build environmental literacy at the community level and democratize access to data describing the rates of change due to the climate crisis. Find out more on Facebook, Instagram and at bigcanoeproject.org.


The executive director, and lead guide, at Big Canoe Project first assisted with lake surveys as part of the Ontario Ranger Program and, what was then, the Ministry of Natural Resources. He has assisted a Master's thesis study on Fox snakes using radio telemetry while working for Georgian Bay Islands National Park and he has contributed data to park wide loon and butterfly counts while employed as, over the years, an outfitter, guide and backcountry maintenance in Killarney Provincial Park.
He is also an Ontario Certified Teacher and has been incorporating the appreciation of the natural world into his professional practice for the past decade.
