Don Ross
Don Ross has been involved in conservation issues from a variety of approaches and positions for over 40 years. The success of these many initiatives has produced tangible benefits for the conservation community in general and for Eastern Ontario in particular. From his beginnings as Chief Naturalist with Parks Canada, through his time as a sporting goods retailer where he promoted sustainable and passive recreation such as windsurfing and canoeing, Don was very respectful of our natural environment. He is also a master woodworker who has restored homes and watercraft using a conscientious low energy approach.
A biologist and former chief naturalist with the St. Lawrence National Park, Don is currently the Executive Director of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve (FABR). The Frontenac Arch is an 80-kilometre-wide bridge of the Canadian Shield that connects Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario with the Adirondack Mountains in New York State. Due to the wide variety of biodiversity found here, including many species at risk, the Arch was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2002. Don spearheaded the successful nomination of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve to UNESCO.
Outside of his work with the Arch, Don is also a very active volunteer. As a founding board member and negotiator/ landowner liaison for the Thousand Islands Watershed Land Trust, Don has protected a number of important sites for land and water conservation. On behalf of the Land Trust he has acted as lead negotiator on a number of very significant acquisitions. Don has also completed shoreline assessments on over 700 area properties making numerous recommendations for improved riparian management - most of which have already been implemented.
