Program Director, Central Ontario
Mark Stabb oversees conservation projects in the Rice Lake Plains of Northumberland County, on the limestone landscape of the Napanee Plain, in the Happy Valley Forest, around Prince Edward County and the islands and shores of the eastern Lake Ontario coast. Before joining the Nature Conservancy of Canada 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.
