Branch Board Director

Creston Valley Branch

Having grown up on the traditional land of the Yaqan Nukiy within the Ktunaxa Territory, Mary Jayne Blackmore is passionate about protecting access to waterways and green spaces for all creatures, which lead to chairing Trails for Creston Valley Society for 5 years. With ten plus years teaching elementary and high school, her focus is to bring kids to have authentic and impactful experiences in natural spaces, so they can better understand that we each have a role and responsibility as stewards and visitors on this land. She sees protecting ancient forests and water as vital to planning for a sustainable future.
