Colin is the Calgary Forest Educator for Inside Education, he also works with our partner organization Work Wild on forestry career education. Colin has always loved spending time outside and in Alberta’s forests. Colin attended Mount Royal University and earned a Bachelor of Applied Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership. Through university, he found his passion for inspiring young people and taking them outside. Nowadays when he isn’t learning with kids in the forest you can find Colin gardening, fly fishing, skiing, or riding one of his numerous bikes – road, mountain, cyclocross, he does it all!
