  • Ruth Tracy, Limestone Chapter
    Ruth Tracy, Limestone Chapter

    Ruth Tracy’s appreciation of trees began as she grew up on a farm in northern Ontario. As an adult, she purchased a property in 1976, which had old farm fields and an existing hardwood stand. Under the Woodlands Improvement Act, she had over 12,000 conifers planted—now her entire property is wooded except for the site of the house that she designed for her retirement.

    While working as a college teacher, a co-worker invited Ruth to join the OWA. She has been a member for over 20 years and serves on her Chapter board.

    Education has always been a priority for Ruth; membership in the OWA means she will continue to learn even into her retirement. She has given a niece an OWA membership as a gift to ensure the next generation will continue on with her tradition.
