South Shore Chapter Leaders – Heather Haughn and Tyrel Stevens
Heather was born and raised in Lunenburg, and after high school moved away to study a BA in Psychology, and then both a BSW and MSW in Social Work. She has always found that being in nature is a great way to become grounded and offers many opportunities to practice mindfulness. Heather is an amateur birder and is often found hiding amongst the trees and bushes with her camera. Her love of nature is shared with her husband, Tyrel, and young children who are always eager to explore the outdoors. A lover of all things outdoors, Tyrel grew up hunting, fishing, foraging etc. in Northern Newfoundland where he was born. Once out of high school, he moved around the country a bit but eventually went back to Newfoundland to study to become a Fish and Wildlife technician and a couple years later a Forestry technician. He is now living on the South Shore and working as Forest Technician, while spending his free time exploring the outdoors with his family.
