Employment

2011 -

Director, Gault Nature Reserve, McGill University, Mont Sant-Hilaire, Canada

Gault Nature Reserve of McGill University is a private reserve which protects 1000 hectares of natural primeval forests of the St. Lawrence Valley. Situated at Mont-Saint-Hilaire approximately 40 km from Montreal, this panoramic natural landscape is ideal for discovering nature, teaching and university research. In 1978, the Reserve and its immediate surroundings were recognized as the first Biosphere Reserve in Canada under the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Program.

The field station at the Wilder and Helen Penfield Nature Conservancy is a satellite station of the Gault Nature Reserve; it is located on Lake Memphremagog, 100 km southeast of Montreal.
