Paula Carpenter first discovered Pelee Island 15 years ago, working for a season for The Wilds of Pelee – Outdoor Centre for Conservation after graduating from The Environmental Technician and Ecosystem Restoration programs at Niagara College. She is very excited to be coming back and to be able to share her love of the Island’s natural wonders with others.
Paula grew up on a farm in Norfolk County where her love of nature was sparked from a very young age. Since then she has travelled various locations across North and Central America, backpacked through Mexico, and sailed along the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. She’s lived in BC for the last 13 years where she worked for The City of Surrey in the Urban Forestry section of the Parks Department as a certified arborist and tree risk assessor.
She enjoys a diverse array of hobbies including skiing, playing various instruments, belly dancing, crocheting, and various wool felting techniques to mention a few.
