Through work overseas and across northern Canada, Reg has developed a specialization in integrated rural development and resource stewardship planning with a focus on rural watersheds. His consulting work includes negotiation of forest resource-access agreements, preparation of regional and local land-use plans, and development of training and community resource management programs. Milestones in Reg’s advocacy work include formation of the Peace River Watershed Council, and the Boreal Centre for Conservation Enterprise.
