Ross Beaty, a past Nature Trust Director and current member of the Advisory Board, has been named as one of the 99 new appointments to the Order of Canada. His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, announced these appointments on June 30, 2017.
Ross has not only been successful in business, but has made giving back a priority in his life. He supports many environmental organizations including The Nature Trust of BC.
“Land conservation is the purest and most effective form of nature protection. Humans gain spiritual and physical nourishment from healthy natural ecosystems. We delight in the beauty and variety of other species. We are richer when we live in closer harmony with nature. In protecting the wild places and the myriad of species which inhabit them, The Nature Trust of British Columbia protects humans too – current residents of British Columbia and all future residents.”
