Profile: Alicia’s passion for the environment began early on as her family spent their summers camping through B.C.’s provincial parks where they would go skiing, hiking, canoeing, and snow-shoeing. That passion led Alicia to various work experiences within the environmental sector such as amphibian monitoring, ground truthing for The Wetland Global Change Resource Network, and assisting with public education discussions on biodiversity. Several years ago, Alicia successfully completed a cross-country skiing camping trip to Lake O’Hara in Yoho National Park while working with the ecological integrity monitoring program for Parks Canada. Alicia chose to volunteer with BCWF so she could assist in furthering the “organization’s accomplishments within their public education and environmental awareness programs”. Currently, Alicia is in her fourth year at Simon Fraser University, completing a degree in Geography with an environmental specialty. Another one of Alicia’s passions is backpacking through various regions of the world and partaking in many cultural activities. While in Thailand, she was able to camp overnight on a beach in a state park, and in Cambodia she was able to visit elephants in an elephant sanctuary (wow!). In the future, Alicia hopes to travel to all seven continents.
