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”.

    Brian and Margo McClean

    The McCleans are self-described environmentalists who have made the conscious decision to own and preserve a piece of Ontario forest. Their dream came true when they acquired a woodlot in 2013.

    The original owner suggested they would benefit from joining the OWA, and so they did. Since then, they have attended events, learning about sustainable forest management and have become FSC certified.

    Through their contact with forestry professionals and other OWA members, the McClean’s have learned about the work involved in caring for wooded land. Monitoring for pests, dealing with invasive species and learning about forest health is all part of being good stewards. They have also found a local land trust which will carry on their work in perpetuity.

    Brian and Margo belong to the Ontario Woodlot Association because of the emphasis the organization places on stewardship and best forestry practices.
