I’m Danielle, and I am in charge of maintaining the grounds the Cedar Haven as well as helping with A Rocha’s restoration projects. Water is my favourite part of nature, and the idea of conserving and restoring water is very exciting to me! A Rocha’s values align with mine, and working here combines stewarding creation and teaching others why it is important. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from Redeemer University College. I enjoy that my position allows me to be outside and working with nature.
