This past Tuesday, June 4, our province lost a leader in conservation and education with the passing of Jerry Brunen. For us at Inside Education, we lost a Board member of nearly 15 years, a mentor and a great friend.
Each spring, Inside Education embarks in a comprehensive education program that sees us visiting thousands of students across Alberta providing hands on, interactive and experiential wetlands education. These programs exist because of Jerry Brunen. Jerry’s expertise, leadership and passion about conservation education was unmatched in our province.
We will miss Jerry’s insightful contributions to our Board of Directors, his tireless energy and his great advice. We will especially miss his laugh.
To Jerry’s family and his work families at Western Sky Land Trust and Ducks Unlimited Canada, we extend our deep condolences and we celebrate a life so well lived.
Steve McIsaac, Executive Director
