Lindsay Boucher, Prairie Chapter Coordinator

Lindsay Boucher is the Prairie Chapter Coordinator for Sierra Club Canada Foundation. She grew up in Edmonton spending a lot of time outdoors – whether it was through camping, canoeing or simply searching for insects in her backyard. She graduated from the University of Alberta with a degree in biology. There, she discovered a passion for preserving natural areas through learning of the impact of climate change and pollution on the environment. She has gained valuable insight doing research in oil toxicology as well as water quality monitoring through the University of Alberta and environmental non-profit organizations. When she is not working, Lindsay enjoys swing dancing, snowboarding and walking through the Edmonton river valley.
