Mark Stabb is the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) program director for Central Ontario – East and oversees conservation projects across the Rice Lake Plains on the Oak Ridges Moraine, on the limestone landscape of the Napanee Plain and around Prince Edward County and the islands and shores of the eastern Lake Ontario coast. Before joining NCC in 2006, Mark worked as a biologist and park planner for the Government of Ontario, as a teacher at a community college, as a wetland program manager and as a freelance writer and ecological consultant on forestry matters.

An avid hiker and naturalist, Mark’s current fascination is with exploring the landscape legacy associated with glacial Lake Iroquois. Mark lives with his partner and two daughters (and his ‘prairie’ dog Ella) in Uxbridge, where they can be found on local trails searching for flying squirrels.
