Neil McEachern

August 30, 2016

Neil spent most of his childhood outside of Canada with limited opportunities to interact with nature. Upon his eventual return to Canada, he slowly began to reconnect with the natural world and started to appreciate the wonderful bounty available to him. He would eventually work in the non-profit sector and discover an interest in environmental education and conservation through his work at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre. He hopes to use his deep-seated understanding of the importance of providing youth with access to transformative nature experiences and his experience from working in the environmental non-profit sector to benefit the Environmental Youth Alliance in the coming years.
