Martin Gourlie (Contributor): Martin has a BA in Geography from the University of Regina, focusing on urban issues. He is interested in neighbourhoods, topophilia, downtowns, shops and soccer fields. What is facinating about these features is how they combine, change, and engage with all the pieces of civic life through time.
Katherine Forster (Guest Contributor): Katherine’s curiosity and interest in the flora and fauna surrounding her, propelled her to make a mid-life career change to study Ecosystem Management at Fleming College in Lindsay, Ontario. Her permanent residence is in an older central neighborhood of Ottawa, where she lives with her partner Viliam and their cat Max. Co-organizing the Ottawa Urban Wild Tours in 2011 with Julie Hong from Transition Ottawa was her first foray in the urban ecology field. The tours were well-received and a second season of tours is now in the works!
