Kaitlin Richardson became part of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) team in February 2018. She has always loved plants, wildlife and the outdoors, leading her to pursue an undergraduate degree in environment and resource studies at the University of Waterloo. Kaitlin also has a master of environmental studies degree that focused on the effects of climate change on Ontario’s sugar maple forests and adaptive forest management.
Kaitlin grew up in St. Thomas, Ontario, and has worked with the Thames Talbot Land Trust and ReForest London before coming to NCC. She spends her spare time in her native plant garden, hiking with her three dogs and botanizing!
