2022 Garden Tour A Success

Photos above provided by Tim Evans.

My name is Tim Evans, a Registered Massage Therapist for over 26 years and a gardener for even longer. I am also a long-time friend of Julia Schoen, past coordinator for Nature Manitoba’s garden tours. Julia got me involved many years ago when showing my garden from my previous home on one of the Nature Manitoba garden tours. Since then I have become ‘hooked’ on garden tours.

Welcome Marissa!

Hello! My name is Marissa Berard (she/her), and I am so excited to get started as the new coordinator for the Manitoba Important Bird Area (IBA) Caretaker Program and the Manitoba Chimney Swift Initiative (MCSI). I absolutely love birds, and feel very lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of organizations that value bird conservation and to work alongside wonderful people who are passionate about the natural world.
