Shuswap Naturalist Club Bursary winner - 2023

Gregory Griffiths, Bachelor of  Natural Resource Science, Thompson Rivers University

Dear Shuswap Naturalist Club,

I would like to extend my gratitude to all Shuswap Naturalist Club members for a very generous contribution to the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at TRU.  To be chosen as the 2023 recipient of the award is an honor.   I grew up spending time in the outdoors surrounding my hometown of Kamloop, BC, instilling a passion for nature that has followed me from an early age.  The funds will assist my pursuit in a career managing the provincial importance of forests.  Working in wildfire management has given me appreciation for the  protection of many values including biodiversity, plant communities and wildlife habitat.  As I evolve from seasonal employee and student to eventual full-time forest professional, protection of such values will be entwined in decision making throughout my career.  The award means more to me than I can express in a single letter, however, I hope that I have effectively expressed my appreciation.
