Mark Stabb is the central Ontario program director with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), and oversees conservation projects across the Oak Ridges Moraine, on the Happy Valley Forest north of Toronto, on the limestone landscape of the Napanee Plain and beyond. 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 in Uxbridge, where they can be found on local trails searching for flying squirrels.
