Volunteer Spotlight April 2014 - Jason Jordan

Name: Jason Jordan

Volunteer since: May 2010
 
Volunteer as: Tree Guru, Community Liaison, Parks Action Team member, Tree Planter and Buckthorn Buster.
 
Autobiography : I have lived in London most of my life; born in Chatham, Ontario.  My winters are spent indoors; reading, doing art and staying warm.  It is the summer, when I am outside the most; biking, hiking, cafe patios.  I studied Urban Design and Interior Design at Fanshawe College; I try to keep a balance in life while having a broad range of interest.  With my involvement with ReForest London, I am studying more about trees and ecology systems.  When I started I did not know one maple for other; this year I'll be spending time in the woods, learning my trees and the other habitats. 
 
Reflection on Volunteering:  My involvement with ReForest London started by attending one tree planting, then went to the next one and the following one.  I did not intend to be heavily involved, except I found that volunteering with ReForest London had become a passion of mine.  I volunteer with many different groups at different levels of involvement.   It is not only a way to be giving back to the world; also it is a way to make changes in the world to make it better for all.

Thank you for your continuing support Jason!
