Cara Copeland is the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) conservation biology coordinator for midwestern Ontario. She joined the NCC team in 2009. Originally hailing from northern Ontario where she first developed her love of the outdoors, Cara migrated south for university and has lived there ever since.
When not out tackling invasive plants or searching for rare thistles, Cara enjoys spending her time hiking, camping and curling up with a good book (ideally some combination of the three!).
