Know Your Neighbour: Marianne Ober

Posted on


Getting involved

After attending the 2014 Wild and Scenic Film Festival, Marianne was inspired to volunteer with Wildsight, “I wanted to be part of a group that stands up for our amazing surroundings…I knew that Wildsight would be a great cause to spend some of my time on.” Since spring of 2015, Marianne has been a valuable and motivated member of Wildsight’s Board of Directors.

From one mountain town to another

Marianne moved here two years ago from Southern Germany and cherishes the openness and peace of the backcountry, praising, “there is room to breathe.” She has come to appreciate all the Valley has to offer, “I am proud to support and represent Wildsight Invermere as our community’s voice for the environment and thankful to be able to call this little town my home now…I would not want to miss [it] for the world.”
