Chris Bosman

Kootenay Conservation Land Manager

Originally from southern Ontario, Chris Bosman was attracted to the Kootenays in 2003 for its slower pace of life, outdoor recreation opportunities and its beauty and wildness. He has worked in the environmental non-profit sector as well as for provincial, local and First Nations government organizations. He has also served as a director on a variety of non-profit boards with social and environmental mandates. Chris previously worked for The Nature Trust of British Columbia as a Conservation Youth Crew member and supervisor on a seasonal basis from 2005 until 2009. He brings a multi-disciplinary approach to conservation and is thrilled to be back working with The Nature Trust.

He has an Honours Bachelor of Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism, and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from Lakehead University.

Chris became the Kootenay Conservation Land Manager in 2017.
