Honorary Membership 1998
The Endangered Spaces Campaign was launched in Manitoba at the beginning of this decade, with the goal being to protect representative areas of each of our natural regions from resource development. Environmental groups (including the MNS) have been working with the province to achieve that goal. The Manitoba Naturalists Society would like to recognize the contributions of two employees of the provincial Parks Branch – Bill Watkins and Roger Schroeder.
Roger Schroeder was a guest speaker at the January Indoor Program and discussed the province’s efforts to manage protected areas. Many of our unique ecosystems are in our provincial parks, and Roger has been responsible for initiatives to identify and bring these areas into the protected areas system.
