Patricia Wilson is a nature lover at heart, and passionate about increasing diversity and inclusion within the conservation and environmental world. Having worked within the environmental non-profit sector for six years, Patricia has filled a variety of roles and has experience in ecological restoration, land stewardship and invasive species management, trail development and community outreach, and currently works with Kawartha Land Trust as their Community Conservation Coordinator. She also holds a BSc from Trent University in Conservation Biology as well as a diploma in Ecosystem Management from Fleming College. As a natural community engager and an emerging leader in the Land Trust sector, Patricia has seen the magic that happens when people and communities rally together to accomplish shared goals - like protecting land and restoring vital habitat. While she has a deep love for this field, she has noticed a huge lack of inclusion of diverse voices and believes that in order to progress further, protect our natural spaces and spread awareness we MUST support and include diverse voices within the environmental movement. Patricia knows that in order to create lasting change, we need to come together to mobilize and empower BIPOC voices, and this led her to create the Diverse Nature Collective.
