Early retirement in 1994 and a passion for bird watching determined the beginning of Jennifer Atchison’s role as a dedicated community environmentalist. Under Jennifer’s leadership, volunteers partnered with both government and the utilities creating a unique union to preserve and rehabilitate the Stoney Creek watershed. For the first time in 70 years, salmon successfully migrated the creek. Jennifer Atchison’s inspired a community to get involved and by doing so created new models for environmental stewardship.
