Chris Bosman is the Kootenay Conservation Land Manager for The Nature Trust of BC (NTBC). Originally from Southern Ontario, he moved to the East Kootenay in 2003 and chose to stay, feeling a strong connection to the landscape, its communities and people. During his time in the region, Chris has worked in natural resource management for provincial, local and First Nations governments, and briefly for the forestry industry. He also has experience working and volunteering with other conservation non-profits besides NTBC. A graduate of Lakehead University, Chris holds an Honours Bachelor of Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography. He is passionate about private land conservation and enjoys getting out to experience nature in many forms, whenever he can. Chris lives with his partner and daughter in Kimberley, BC.
