June Kennedy

June Kennedy and her late husband, Bev, bought their 147 acre woodlot in the mid-1980’s. They joined the OWA soon after its inception and Bev served on the chapter board for many years. He and June hosted chapter events at their property on several occasions.

After Bev’s passing, when June decided to sell their woodlot, she assumed she could no longer be an OWA member. Fortunately, she learned that ownership was not a criteria, and she is still on our membership list.

“I miss the woods” she says “and seeing all the wildlife, but time marches on”. She adds “I don’t get out to the OWA events as much anymore but hope to again soon.” June has many good friends made through the OWA and continues to support the organization. “I like every event; there’s always something new to learn, and above all, I enjoy the fellowship”.

    Dave Sexsmith

    Dave first joined the OWA at the invitation of a friend and he has been an active member since. He has served on his chapter’s board and hosted field days for the organization.

    Through his involvement with the OWA, Dave has met many people who share his fascination with trees and enjoy exchanging experiences and ideas. Knowledge gained has allowed Dave to better appreciate the ability of the forest to provide products for our use and still be the biodiversity centre of our province.

    Through tree planting and natural regeneration, Dave, and his wife Lois, have seen their old farm fields convert into a treed landscape, providing wildlife corridors and habitat.

    A lifelong woodworker, Dave produces a wide range of woodland products, from firewood and lumber to carved burl bowls while, at the same time, observing how his property is evolving back to mature forest.

    Of his experience with the OWA Dave says “I came out to get answers to my forestry questions; I’ve stayed because of the quality of people I’ve met.”
