Leah developed her love of nature from her summers camping, hiking, and canoeing in parks across BC. Recently, she has been having fun tearing up her parents’ yard trying to establish a productive wildlife garden. This pursuit led her to volunteering with EYA’s Pollinator Citizen Scientist program to learn more about the bees who visited her garden and ways to help them. While participating in the program, she was excited to learn that many of the “bugs” she has been seeing were, in fact, bees! Her awareness and interest in pollinators grew, and she is excited to continue learning with the EYA’s Wildlife Stewardship program.
