Jean Collins-Gibson, Vice President

How did you first become interested in the environment?
My childhood was replete with nature experiences, thanks to the way of life in Berwick, where I grew up, and to spring until fall visits to Lake George, where both sets of grandparents owned cottages.

What is your favourite species native to Nova Scotia?
Pink ladyslippers were a favourite since childhood. They appeared in the same location at one of those cottages, and I learned never to pick them. But there was a secret field way back in the woods where they were so abundant that we were allowed to collect a small bouquet, leaving roots and leaves intact.

What is your favourite memory of being in nature or your favourite activity to do outside?
The family canoe, beginning with a cedar strip one belonging to my grandmother, and ending with an untippable, unsinkable aluminum one safe enough for a family with three small children, is associated with many memorable paddles to explore the nooks and crannies of the shoreline, to reach favourite fishing spots, to pick water lilies, and sometimes to see how close we might get to the resident loons. A camera was always close at hand, and later life has meant more photography of nature, especially close-up views.
