Conservation Champions are also those young people who have already contributed to local conservation efforts, and those who we believe will be the future faces of conservation. Brad Renaud is one such contributor. He has been involved in the Friends of Cedar, Mill and Wigle through his Scouts work, and has participated in tree planting, garlic mustard pulls and bat box construction. He was one of the first young people to become a member of our Youth Engagement Team, and continues to demonstrate leadership with this group.
Brad has achieved his Chief Scout Status and has now become a Venture, where he mentors other young people. He was a leader in last year’s e-waste collection day, collecting several cars full of unused electronics. We know we’ll be seeing many more great things from Brad in years to come, and are pleased to honour him as a Conservation Champion.
