Alison is an environmental scientist from Edmonton, who’s spent the past decade in various realms of environmental research, field work and consulting. She has been paid to hike and hug trees (well, measure them, really) and pick berries (to understand what the bears eat) all over Alberta.
She’s also worked on biodiversity reporting and environmental impact assessment projects, and has even contributed to the development of carbon offset protocols. At present, she’s exploring her options and trying to decide what future directions to pursue within the diverse field.
When she’s not thinking about trees and bears and carbon and climate change and biodiversity, she’s exploring the cities and towns she lives in. At present, it’s Edmonton, her home town. For three years, it was Calgary, and for a few summers, it was a number of communities and work camps in the north and foothills of the province (and for one summer, it was Yellowstone National Park in the States).
Because it’s Edmonton, and because her roots run deep in this city, this week’s tweets will include wanders to some of her old haunts and new favourite places. And she pretty much promises, there will be tweets about fireworks and (hopefully) pancakes on Canada Day!
